I have access to the ISI database and the number of citations in ISI of the GO
Nature Genetics paper is Zero. The reason: It is a consortium paper and ISI is
not counting citations of papers of consortia but only of papers with lists of
individual authors. It is not only a problem of the GO consortium. Guess how
often this paper gets counted as a citation in ISI:
INT HUM GEN SEQ C    NATURE                      409       860      2001
