A presentation by Susan Tweedie the FlyBase GO curator from the Department of Genetics.

Ontologies such as the gene ontology (GO) and sequence ontology (SO) are now widely used to annotate biological features. In this presentation I’ll give a brief introduction to biological ontologies and a more detailed description of how databases, such as FlyBase, use GO terms to annotate genes. GO annotation is more than a simple label to describe function/location; I’ll describe how an understanding of additional components such as evidence codes and qualifiers is important for users to analyse GO data effectively. Finally, I’ll describe the role of the GO consortium in developing new GO terms, distributing annotation sets and setting annotation standards across different databases.
