Gene Ontology Consortium: going forward
Improvements and expansions to several branches of the Gene Ontology, as well as updates that have allowed us to more efficiently disseminate the GO and capture feedback from the research community are described.
Gene Ontology Consortium: The Gene Ontology (GO) database and informatics resource
The Gene Ontology (GO) project provides structured, controlled vocabularies and classifications that cover several domains of molecular and cellular biology and are freely available for community use in the annotation of genes, gene products and sequences.
Entomopathogenic nematodes
The Gene Ontology resource: enriching a GOld mine
A historical archive covering the past 15 years of GO data with a consistent format and file structure for both the ontology and annotations is made available to maintain consistency with other ontologies.
Textpresso: An Ontology-Based Information Retrieval and Extraction System for Biological Literature
Extraction of particular biological facts can be accelerated significantly by ontologies, with Textpresso automatically performing nearly as well as expert curators to identify sentences; in searches for two uniquely named genes and an interaction term, the ontology confers a 3-fold increase of search efficiency.
WormBase: a comprehensive resource for nematode research
New species and data types now available at WormBase are described and enhancements to the curatorial pipeline and website infrastructure are detail to accommodate new genomes and an extensive user base.
WormBase: network access to the genome and biology of Caenorhabditis elegans
WormBase (http://www.wormbase.org) is a web-based resource for the Caenorhabditis elegans genome and its biology. It builds upon the existing ACeDB database of the C.elegans genome by providing data
A polycystic kidney-disease gene homologue required for male mating behaviour in C. elegans
A gene, lov-1 (for location of vulva), is identified that is required for two male sensory behaviours: response and vulva location and it is suggested that they function in the same pathway.
