[gofriends] warning: new tags in gene_ontology_edit.obo file from 9th August 2007

Dear GO friends,

As of 9th August this year, the file gene_ontology_edit.obo, i.e.:

will contain an extra tag, disjoint_from. This tag will allow us to 
specify that certain pairs of terms within GO are disjoint, meaning that 
the two terms have no instances or subclasses in common. Initially this tag will only be 
applied to the terms 'cellular process', 'multicellular organismal 
process' and 'multi-organism process' in the process ontology, but it 
will be used more widely in the future. For more information about the disjoint_from
tag, see the OBO 1.2 file format specifications:

Or email gohelp at with any further questions.

* Note that the file gene_ontology.obo will remain unchanged.

many thanks,

The GO Consortium
