Latest News

In this release we have changed the referencing of GO Cellular Component
annotations from the Human Protein Atlas (HPA) and LIFEdb. Previously
all HPA annotations were referenced by PMID:18029348 and all LIFEdb
annotations by PMID:11256614. These papers describe the pilot studies
and methodology used to obtain the annotations rather than experiments
for the individual protein localizations.

It was decided that these annotations would be more correctly described
using a GO reference (GO_REF), which is an abstract describing the
methodology behind a set of annotations.

The HPA annotations are now referenced by GO_REF:0000052 and the LIFEdb
annotations by GO_REF:0000054. Both references are described here:
