The Gene Ontology Annotation (GOA) project provides high-quality functional annotations to gene products, such as proteins, protein complexes and non-coding RNAs. Currently our database contains over 390 million annotations to 60 million distinct gene products from almost 725,000 taxa. It is therefore critical to be able to easily and quickly mine and visualise the available information. 

Our team is happy to announce the release of a new version of our popular web-based tool for browsing and interpreting the GO and associated annotations, QuickGO. 

This webinar will show you how to retrieve the annotations provided for your genes or gene products and download the corresponding data set using the QuickGO browser. We will also cover where the annotations come from and the features available to help you find the right dataset for your work.

This webinar took place on 2nd August 2017. You can watch a recording of the webinar and download the slides in Train online.


This webinar is for people who want to learn more about gene ontologies and using QuickGo. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required but an undergraduate level of biology would be an advantage.
