GOA releases: 04 March 2010

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

The data can be obtained via:

           EBI FTP:

           EBI SRS: Search GOA data library

It is intended that the contents of column 1 in UniProtKB-GOA gene 
association files will change at our next monthly release.  Currently 
column 1 displays the values 'UniProtKB/TrEMBL' or 
'UniProtKB/Swiss-Prot' to indicate which section of UniProtKB an 
accession is a member (please see our readme for further information on 
our annotation format: However, 
these two different UniProtKB descriptions have caused processing issues 
for GO Consortium tools. Therefore we are intending that information on 
whether a protein is a member of the UniProtKB Swiss-Prot or TrEMBL sets 
will be provided to users in a tab-separated, supplementary gene product 
information file that will be released alongside UniProtKB-GOA gene 
association files, and column 1 will be changed to consistently display 
'UniProtKB' for all UniProtKB accessions. Please contact us if you have 
any concerns regarding this format change.
