Cardiovascular Gene Annotation


The Cardiovascular Gene Annotation project is focused on Gene Ontology (GO) annotation of cardiovascular-relevant microRNAs and proteins and the capture of protein-protein interactions to IMEx standards. To find out more about the heart and cardiovascular system, please see the British Heart Foundation website.

Annotations contributed by this project to the GO Consortium dataset and the IMEx dataset are attributed to BHF-UCL.

The BHF-funded GO annotations have facilitated the detailed and high-quality annotation of cardiovascular-relevant genes, the impact of which is demonstrated in Alam-Faruque, 2011.

What we curate


You can contribute by
