Getting data from GO

Downloading GO

The GO datasets are freely available from the download section of the GO website. You can download the files in several formats:

The flat files come in two versions:

  • A full version of the ontology, which contains inter-ontology links, extended relationships and cross-products (compound terms).
  • A filtered version of the ontology. This does not  contain inter-ontology links, extended relationships and compound terms.
