UniProt-GOA release: 16 March 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.

The data can be obtained via:

- 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 

We intend to cease production of the current goa_ and goa_ref_ 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.

We plan to implement these changes in the GOA release that is scheduled 
for the week of May 9th 2016.

Comments on this proposal should be sent to goa at
