QuickGO - Gene ontology annotation


This webinar focuses on how to use QuickGO, our online browser for viewing the gene ontology (GO) and GO annotations. We will be reviewing what GO is, how to read an annotation, and how you can use QuickGO to find the information youneed. 

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. 

This webinar was recorded on 10th October 2018. The slides from the webinar can be downloaded from the materials section below. This video is best viewed using Google Chrome and in full-screen mode.

This webinar is aimed at anyone who wants to learn more about gene ontology annotation. No prior knowledge of bioinformatics is required, but an undergraduate level understanding of biology would be useful.
