GOA

Gene Ontology Annotation (GOA) Database

The GO annotation program aims to provide high-quality Gene Ontology (GO) annotations to proteins in the UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB), RNA molecules from RNACentral and protein complexes from the Complex Portal. To search and view Gene Ontology terms and annotations, please use our QuickGO browser.

GOA files contain a mixture of manual annotation supplied by members of the Gene Onotology Consortium and computationally assigned GO terms describing gene products. Annotation type is clearly indicated by associated evidence codes and there are links to the source data.

Release cycle

All GOA files are released approximately every four weeks and can be accessed from our Downloads page. We aim to coordinate our release with releases of UniProtKB.
