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 
( 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 for 
instructions). We also soon hope to provide a filter in AmiGO for viewing 
the prokaryote subset terms.

Please feel to contact me for any further information,

many thanks,

Jane Lomax
