filtering out eukaryote-specific terms from GO

GO friends -
For those users of GO who would rather not view eukaryote-specific
terms (such as mitochondrial and nuclear terms), we now have available
as part of the OBO format ontology file
(http://www.geneontology.org/ontology/gene_ontology.obo) a new category
of GO terms: a prokaryotic subset used to filter out eukaryotic terms.
This is not the same as a GO slim, as it does not provide a set of high
level terms, rather it is a reduced set of terms. This category is
intended to be used as an annotator aid, and allows an annotator to
browse and choose from a smaller set of terms, although obviously no-one
is ever restricted to using just these terms.
This category of terms will not be generated as a separate file like GO
slims, but will be part of the gene_ontology.obo file, and can be viewed
using a filter in DAG-Edit (see
instructions). We also soon hope to provide a filter in AmiGO for viewing
the prokaryote subset terms.
