[Gofriends] GO annotation in tab-delimited format

Dear Shameer,

You can download tab-delimited flat files of GO annotations from the GO 
repository from this web page:

Or, if you prefer, the same files are available by FTP and anonymous CVS, 
as described here:

If you need the GOA UniProt annotation file, we strongly recommend the FTP 
download, because the file is so big that only FTP works well with it.

The file format is documented here:

If you have any further questions about the annotation files or their 
contents, you can reach us via the GO helpdesk at 
<gohelp at>.
