[Gofriends] RGD's newest video tutorial introduces novice users to ontologies

Most of us who work with the Gene Ontology have long forgotten what it
felt like to not understand what "GO" meant, or what an ontology was.
But that's the place where many of our users are.  With that in mind,
the Rat Genome Database has produced a short tutorial video designed to
introduce novice users to what an ontology is, why ontologies are useful
and where to find ontology annotations assigned to genes and/or gene
products.  The video, "Introduction to Biomedical Ontologies #1: What is
an Ontology?", is available on both SciVee
( and Vimeo


RGD is happy to make this video available for anyone in the GO
Consortium to use if you need a very basic introduction to ontologies.
The next video in the series will cover the details of ontology
annotations and should be available (also on SciVee and Vimeo) within
the next few weeks.


If you have any questions, comments or suggestions regarding this or
future videos, including suggested content for future videos, please
send them to Jennifer Smith at jrsmith at


The RGD team
