Functional Gene Annotation
What we do
Education and training
is the translation of biological knowledge and its integration into
databases thereby making the data easily accessible for visualisation
We curate the scientific literature to provide;
Gene Ontology annotations to the GO Consortium
Protein interaction data to the IMEx Consortium.
This gene product functional information enables researchers to rapidly evaluate and interpret data and generate hypotheses to guide future research into cardiovascular processes and Parkinson's Disease.
The Functional Gene Annotation team teaches a bioinformatics module for the UCL Genetics Institute's MSc in Genetics of Human Disease.
We also run an annual workshop on GO and other bioinformatics resources. Contact us for further information.
You can contribute by
- reviewing the annotation of your favourite gene and tell us what's missing or inaccurate (or tell us if we've done a good job!)
- suggesting papers for curation
The Functional Gene Annotation projects represent collaborations between;
