UniProt-GOA release: 21 January 2016

UniProt-GOA (UniProt GO Annotation) is a project run by the UniProt
group that provides assignments of gene products to the Gene Ontology
(GO) resource.

- Proposed changes to GOA annotation files

Following discussions with the GO Consortium, we are planning to make 
some changes to the set of species-specific annotation files that we 

For each of the following species, we currently publish two sets of 
annotations, one based on the UniProt complete proteome, and one based 
on the UniProt reference proteome:

	human chicken cow pig dog mouse rat arabidopsis zebrafish worm yeast 
fly dicty

We intend to cease production of the current goa_<species> and 
goa_ref_<species> files, and replace them with the following four 
annotation sets per species, which we will provide in both GAF and GPAD 
format (note that the names of the files are as yet undecided):

	1. annotations to canonical accessions from the UniProt reference proteome
	2. annotations to isoforms from the UniProt reference proteome
	3. annotations to complexes
	4. annotations to RNAs

Note that annotations to proteins that are not part of the UniProt 
reference proteome for a species will still be available in the full 
goa_uniprot annotation set.

Note also that this change will not be implemented before the GOA 
release that is scheduled for the week of March 14th 2016.

Comments on this proposal should be sent to goa at
