The last time I talked about how to read a GOA gene_associations file into a Python dictionary data structure.  Our goal was to find all genes that are annotated as hydrolases in the GOA gene_associations file. The tricky part is, most enzymes are not […]

It also provides GO annotations to several genome projects: Chicken, Arabidopsis, Fly, Human, Mouse, Rat and Cow.
