The work of the Cardiovascular Gene Annotation group is supported by British Heart Foundation grant RG/13/5/30112. The work of the Neurological Gene Annotation group is supported by Alzheimer's Research UK grant ARUK-NSG2016-13. The Functional Gene Annotation team is supported by the National Institute for Health Research University College London Hospitals Biomedical Research Centre.
10 year anniversary
We are celebrating our 10 year anniversary of the UCL Functional Gene Annotation team based at the Rayne Institute, UCL. During this time we have created over 52,000 GO annotations and 3,200 molecular interactions based on the review of over 6,300 experimental papers. The Functional Gene Annotation team was originally set up as a project within the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) with funding from the Wellcome Trust. But funding from the British Heart Foundation enabled the project to become established as a group in its own right and begin the task of providing descriptive annotations for gene products relevant to cardiovascular disease. Since then funding by Parkinson’s UK and then Alzheimer’s Research UK has led to our annotation of gene products relevant to neurological diseases.
Cardiovascular Gene Annotation Newsletter has just been published
The current newsletter provides an overview of the meetings the team have recently attended, information about the 666 molecular interaction annotations Nancy has recently created, and a summary of the progress Vanessa is making with annotating the role of microRNAs in heart-relevant processes.
