Parkinson's UK annotation project
Our paper 'Using the Gene Ontology to Annotate Key Players in Parkinson's Disease' has been published in Neuroinformatics.
Cardiovascular project newsletter
The UCL Cardiovascular Gene Annotation newsletter is now available. A new biocurator joins us this year, Barbara Czub, and we will be supervising 2 MSc student projects. In addition, Jess and Nancy have been annotating the telomere maintenance.Tweets by @UCLgene
Neurological Gene Annotation
The Neurological Gene Annotation project is focused on Gene
Ontology (GO) annotation of Parkinson's Disease-relevant proteins. To find out more about Parkinson's Disease, please see the Parkinson's UK website.
Annotations contributed by this project to the GO Consortium dataset are attributed to ParkinsonsUK-UCL.
By using GO to curate scientific literature we are creating a resource for the Parkinson’s Disease community that will enable researchers to rapidly evaluate and interpret existing data and generate hypotheses to guide future research.
See our latest news and progress in our current newsletter.
What we curate
We contribute Gene Ontology annotations for proteins to the GO Consortium.
A high-priority set of Parkinson's Disease-relevant genes have been selected based on genetic linkage or association studies:
A larger set of proteins were chosen based on their interaction with high-priority proteins or because of their role in Parkinson's-related biological processes and includes the gene products from the list above:
Example of curated protein: human LRRK2.
