E.coli annotations?

Gwinn, Michelle L. MLGwinn at

Hello Ian,

TIGR has submitted manual annotations for 11 complete prokaryotic genomes to the GO repository.  These are all currently accessible though the AmiGO site linked from the GO page.  E. coli and B. subtilis are not among them (as we have been only been doing TIGR genomes manually so far) but there are several other organisms of interest including B. anthracis.  Please take a look at the list in the current annotations (click "annotations" under "downloads" on the GO page) to see all of the available TIGR genomes with manual annotation.

If you have any questions or if I can be of any other help, please let me know.

Subject: E.coli annotations?
Hi all

I'm currently teaching an introductory class in compbio & naturally would
like to discuss GO. Since microbial annotation will feature in the class,
I had thought to use carbohydrate metabolism in E.coli as an initial
example.  However I have, so far, been unable to find meaningful GO
annotations of E.coli (though E.coli is listed on the AmiGO website and by
various GO affiliates) .  My question: where are the E.coli annotations?
Or is something like EcoCyc the only option for this organism?  And if the
latter, what is the prokaryotic coverage, and to what extent can GO
currently be used as a prokaryotic annotation resource?

yours hopefully
