GOblet is a comprehensive web server application providing the annotation of anonymous sequence data with Gene Ontology (GO) terms. It uses a variety of different protein databases (human, murines, invertebrates, plants, sp-trembl) and their respective GO mappings. The user selects the appropriate database and alignment threshold and thereafter submits single or multiple nucleotide or protein sequences. Results are shown in different ways, e.g. as survey statistics for the main GO categories…

GOblet: Annotation of anonymous sequence data with Gene Ontology and Pathway terms
TLDR
The GOblet web service is extended to integrate also pathway annotations, and the data analysis pipeline is extended and upgraded with improved summaries, and added term enrichment and clustering algorithms.
UTMGO: A Tool for Searching a Group of Semantically Related Gene Ontology Terms and Application to Annotation of Anonymous Protein Sequence
TLDR
The extended UTMGO uses the Gene Ontology terms together with protein sequences associated with the terms to perform the annotation task, and GOPET, GOtcha, GoFigure, and JAFA are used to compare the performance of the extended U TMGO.
WEGO: a web tool for plotting GO annotations
TLDR
WEGO (Web Gene Ontology Annotation Plot) is a simple but useful tool for visualizing, comparing and plotting GO annotation results, designed to deal with the directed acyclic graph structure of GO to facilitate histogram creation of Go annotation results.
Rapid Annotation of Anonymous Sequences from Genome Projects Using Semantic Similarities and a Weighting Scheme in Gene Ontology
TLDR
A novel method called ARGOT (Annotation Retrieval of Gene Ontology Terms) that is able to process quickly thousands of sequences for functional inference and was proven to outperform existing methods and to be suitable for function prediction of single proteins due to its high degree of sensitivity, specificity and coverage.
Assigning new GO annotations to protein data bank sequences by combining structure and sequence homology
TLDR
This work extends the protein annotation currently provided by GOA at the European Bioinformatics Institute to further describe the contents of the Protein Data Bank (PDB), and explores the relationship between sequence, structure, and function.
JAFA: a protein function annotation meta-server
TLDR
JAFA queries several function prediction servers with a protein sequence and assembles the returned predictions in a legible, non-redundant format, and combines the predictions of several servers to provide a comprehensive view of what are the predicted functions of the proteins.
Blast2GO: A Comprehensive Suite for Functional Analysis in Plant Genomics
TLDR
The Blast2GO suite is described as a comprehensive bioinformatics tool for functional annotation of sequences and data mining on the resulting annotations, primarily based on the gene ontology (GO) vocabulary.
Sequence analysis Blast 2 GO : a universal tool for annotation , visualization and analysis in functional genomics research
TLDR
Blast2GO (B2G), a research tool designed with the main purpose of enabling Gene Ontology (GO) based data mining on sequence data for which no GO annotation is yet available, is presented.
The development of semantic meta-database: an ontology based semantic integration of biological databases
TLDR
A Gene Ontology (GO) based protein sequence annotation tool named extended UTMGO is developed to meet these features and its basic version which is a GO browser based on semantic similarity search is introduced to overcome the weaknesses of conventional approach: the keyword matching.
An evaluation of GO annotation retrieval for BioCreAtIvE and GOA
TLDR
A biological perspective on the evaluation, how the GOA team annotate GO using literature is explained, and some suggestions to improve the precision of future text-retrieval and extraction techniques are offered.

TLDR
Recent developments in MGD discussed here include an extensive integration of the mouse sequence data and substantial revisions in the presentation, query and visualization of sequence data.
Gene Ontology: tool for the unification of biology
TLDR
The goal of the Gene Ontology Consortium is to produce a dynamic, controlled vocabulary that can be applied to all eukaryotes even as knowledge of gene and protein roles in cells is accumulating and changing.

The Zebrafish Information Network (ZFIN) is a web based community resource that serves as a centralized location for the curation and integration of zebrafish genetic, genomic and developmental data.
MAPPFinder: using Gene Ontology and GenMAPP to create a global gene-expression profile from microarray data
TLDR
GenMAPPFinder allows the user to rapidly identify GO terms with over-represented numbers of gene-expression changes, and generates GenMAPP graphical files where gene relationships can be explored, annotated, and files can be freely exchanged.
