[go-helpdesk] Proteome subsets for E.coli from AmiGO

Hi Sharan,

Thanks for all the details. Unfortunately, I'm unable to reproduce your
exact results.

Here's what I did:

 2. Click on AmiGO browser
3. Choose species (Escherichia coli ONLY); click "Set Filters" -> Results =
5435 Gene Products for CC
4. Click on "+" sign by (e.g.) "Cellular Components"
5. Click on histogram to the right of "Cellular Components"
6. Click on link to 4990 gene products for the term GO:0005623 ; cell 4990
gene products


"There are over 154 pages of gene products annotated to the term cell ;
GO:0005623 and its children. Due to limitations in the current AmiGO
software, requests of this size have been disabled. If this is problematic,
please contact the GO helpdesk about query limits. Otherwise, please select
from one of the options below."

The display on HTML of the almost 5K results is disabled.  However, you can
still download the entire result set by clicking on either of the two
alternative links presented in the next sentence.

"Download associations in RDF-XML or tab-delimited gene association format."

I clicked on the 'tab delimited gene association format' and downloaded a
file with 8115 lines, representing annotations to 4990 gene products.

I hope this text file is useful for your purposes.  You should be able to
use a similar approach to download the other subsets of data you are
interested in studying.

Please let me know if you require further assistance.

Best wishes,
