GOA releases: April 2009

*** We have reached 40 million annotations! ***

GOA (GO Annotation at EBI) is a project run by the European Bioinformatics
Institute that aims to provide assignments of gene products to the Gene
Ontology (GO) resource.

The data can be obtained via:

            EBI FTP:

            EBI SRS: Search GOA data library

            GO FTP:

            GO CVS:

Important News about intended file format change:

Please note that GOA intends to change the content of the DB:Reference 
field (Column 6) for all electronic annotations supplied in our gene 
association files at the next file release.

Currently annotation lines produced by electronic methods (as indicated 
by the presence of the 'IEA' evidence code in column 7) contain two 
identfiers piped together in the reference column; an internal GOA 
keyword (e.g. GOA:interpro) and a GO reference identifier (e.g. 
GO_REF:0000002). As of the next file release, the GOA internal reference 
(e.g. GOA:interpro) and pipe will be removed from this field, so that 
only a GO_REF identifier will be provided.

Full descriptions of the methods referenced by a GO reference identifier 
can be found at:

This format change will effect all annotation lines with the following 
reference field contents:
