Great news Fiona and Shane and Co.....

>your own de novo GO annotations in the future

Yes Fiona is annotating to GOA directly using our online GO annotation 
so we will continue to sanity check it and David (MGI) has agreed to help
monitor Fionas work also.

Just spoke with Midori and she has kindly agreed to add your database in 
Then in GOA and QuickGO we can acknowledge you correctly for your manual 
annotations in the gene association attribution column.
Please let Midori know if you have any abbreviations to AgBase you would 
like used.

thanks alot
P.S I liked the chicken picture on the website :-)
