UniProtKB-GOA release: 08 April 2011

UniProtKB-GOA (UniProtKB 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:

A greater diversity of identifiers in the 'with' field (column 8) of 
manual annotations and a rise in the number of Reference Genome 
annotations integrated.

Over the last month we have been working to provide a more complete 
display of the manual annotations that we integrate into the 
UniProtKB-GOA dataset from external annotation groups. Whereas 
previously the 'with' field (column 8) in our annotation file was left 
empty if a manual annotation did not include either UniProtKB or GO 
identifier, our files now displays 43 different gene, protein and 
chemical identifier types (such as WormBase, CHEBI and EcoCyc 
identifiers) in this field. This development ensures that integrated 
manual GO annotations display with the full set of information that 
curation groups have used when translating experimental data into a GO 

The UniProtKB-GOA files also now contain a larger set of the manual 
annotations supplied by the GO Consortium's Reference Genome project 
(source: RefGenome). This project has generated inferred annotations for 
47 species using GO Consortium manual annotations and phylogenetic trees 
from gene families. The Reference Genome project is fully described
