Gene Ontology Annotation (UniProt-GOA) Database
The UniProt GO annotation program aims to provide high-quality Gene Ontology (GO) annotations to proteins in the UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB). The assignment of GO terms to UniProt records is an integral part of UniProt biocuration . UniProt manual and electronic GO annotations are supplemented with manual annotations supplied by external collaborating GO Consortium groups, to ensure a comprehensive GO annotation dataset is supplied to users .
UniProt is a member of the GO Consortium .
For fast access to the Gene Ontology terms and annotations, please use our QuickGO browser.
All UniProt-GOA Gene Association Files are released approximately every four weeks and can be accessed from our Downloads page. We aim to coordinate our release with the UniProtKB releases . In addition, we release our human and chicken Gene Association Files every two weeks to enable the GO Consortium Reference Genome project to use our most up-to-date annotations for curation of orthologous species. These interim releases can be downloaded from our ftp site .
