Gene Ontology

Other names: GO, Gene Ontology (GO), go

The Gene Ontology resource provides a computational representation of our current scientific knowledge about the functions of genes (or, more properly, the protein and non-coding RNA molecules produced by genes) from many different organisms, from humans to bacteria. It describes our knowledge of the biological domain with respect to three aspects: Molecular Function (molecular-level activities performed by gene products), Cellular Component (locations in cellular structures in which a gene product performs a function, Biological Process (‘biological programs’ done by multiple molecular activities, not pathway). Those are semi-disjoint - no is_a link between the 3 but other like part_of and regulates exist.
