Cardiovascular Gene Ontology
The Cardiovascular Gene Ontology Annotation Initiative represents a collaboration between University College London and the European Bioinformatics Institute (EBI), funded by the British Heart Foundation. This annotation group is a member of the GO Consortium.
The Gene Ontology (GO) vocabulary is the established standard for the functional annotation of gene products. By using GO to curate scientific literature and by integrating results from high-quality high-throughput experiments we will create an information-rich resource for the cardiovascular-research community, enabling researchers to rapidly evaluate and interpret existing data and generate hypotheses to guide future research. Over 4,000 cardiovascular associated genes have been identified. Click for more information on how the list was generated or to browse the gene list.
Every GO annotation made, is attributed to an identified source, such as a publication identifier (PMID), and an indication of the type of evidence which supports the association between the gene product and the GO term. For an example, see the annotation record of the fully annotated APOA4 protein. Annotations contributed by this Initiative to the GO consortium dataset are listed as BHF-UCL (British Heart Foundation - University College London).
We welcome feedback from cardiovascular scientists. We encourage researchers to review the annotation of their 'favourite' gene and suggest information that may be missing, inaccurate or incomplete in these annotations.
