[Gofriends] Announcement of changes to QuickGO

The UniProtKB-GOA group would like to alert users to two upcoming 
changes to the QuickGO tool.

1. We intend to remove the ancestor table view from the GO term page, 
(see example; as we 
feel this is a confusing view of the ancestry of a GO term and can 
sometimes be inaccurate in its representation. The ancestor chart view 
will remain.

2. We intend to remove the 'goslim_goa' predefined GO term set, which is 
currently visible from this page; It is felt that this term set 
now provides an inadequate top-level representation of the GO ontologies 
that could provide users with misleading results. A good alternative GO 
term set to use is the 'goslim_generic', which has recently been updated 
and refined to give a good coverage of general biological features 
within the Biological Process and Cellular Component ontologies.

If there are any objections to either of these changes, could you please 
email goa at with details by 28th February 2011. We intend to 
make the changes shortly after this date.

Many thanks,
