New version of Gene Ontology applet

A new (working) version of the Gene Ontology browser applet is now
available from the Berkeley Drosophila Genome Project. Like its
predecessor, this version is experimental and still in development. To use
the new version, go to

Be prepared to wait. This applet has a very long start-up time.

What's new in the GO browser:

* Much smaller memory footprint (the previous version crashed many
     browsers because of its large memory demands)

* mySQL data source - data is now read from a mySQL database instead of
     flat XML files.

* paged gene product reports - the gene products for a term are now
     broken into several pages for easier reading and much faster queries

* documentation - some basic documentation on the GO interface is included
     at (right under the applet starter
     button). You might want to read it while the applet is starting up.

Have fun browsing the ontology. If you have any questions/suggestions
please email go_admin at
