Exploring autophagy with Gene Ontology

PMCID: 5915032
PMID: 29455577
DOI: 10.1080/15548627.2017.1415189

[…] met at regular monthly intervals to update progress, discuss issues, and plan and assign upcoming tasks. To keep track of ontology development needs, record discussions and allow other members of the GOC to contribute, we used a designated issue tracker on the GO GitHub repository [], and tagged tickets with an ‘autophagy’ label. Ontology editors implemented changes using the ontology-editing tool […]


Improving Interpretation of Cardiac Phenotypes and Enhancing Discovery With Expanded Knowledge in the Gene Ontology

Circ Cardiovasc Genet
PMCID: 5821137
PMID: 29440116
DOI: 10.1161/CIRCGEN.117.001813

[…] gies and creating biological annotations and scientists and clinicians engaged in active research can lead to substantial improvements in the computational representation of biological knowledge. The GOC welcomes input from researchers about any aspect of our work, including changes to the ontology and suggestions of papers and gene products to annotate ([email protected], http://geneontology […]


Identification of novel candidate genes for 46,XY disorders of sex development (DSD) using a C57BL/6J YPOS mouse model

PMCID: 5789682
PMID: 29378665
DOI: 10.1186/s13293-018-0167-9

[…] ved in 46,XY DSD pathogenesis, we further queried if the differentially expressed genes from the mouse model (all 515 genes) were involved in any known biological processes. Gene Ontology Consortium (GOC) [] enrichment analysis confirmed that genes underexpressed in B6-YPOS males were indeed enriched in biological processes known to control multicellular organism and anatomical structure developme […]


Quantifying critical states of complex diseases using single sample dynamic network biomarkers

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 5517040
PMID: 28678795
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1005633

[…] wed that the common genes in at least 80% of sDNBs are identified as genes involved in the biological processes of the nuclear division, the mitotic cell cycle, the organelle fission, and so on () by GOC (the gene ontology consortium) and g:Profiler, and these biological processes are associated with the progression of cancer. These common genes were also related to stage 4 non-small-cell lung car […]


Quantitative proteomics study of the neuroprotective effects of B12 on hydrogen peroxide induced apoptosis in SH SY5Y cells

Sci Rep
PMCID: 4782069
PMID: 26951766
DOI: 10.1038/srep22635

[…] ore cut-off = 0.2; k-core = 2; maximum depth = 100; singly connected nodes were removed from clusters. The BiNGO plugin in the Cytoscape environment was used to retrieve the Gene Ontology Consortium (GOC, http://geneontology.org/). […]


Application of comparative biology in GO functional annotation: the mouse model

Mamm Genome
PMCID: 4602061
PMID: 26141960
DOI: 10.1007/s00335-015-9580-0

[…] MGD, as a representative member of the GOC, uses a variety of annotation strategies to provide the best possible annotation set for mouse genes and to contribute to the annotation of the other reference genomes. When genes are experimental […]
