You can enter the name of any organism which appears in UniProt GOA. Please keep in mind that we download
the annotation files automatically from UniProt GOA. This means that the names and files are exactly those
provided by UniProt GOA.
To help select the desired organisms, the names are listed followed by their corresponding Taxon ID.
For example: Drosophila melanogaster Berkeley (7227). In this case, 7227 is the Taxon ID for this particular
The annotation files are fetched regularly from UniProt GOA. Some model organisms are
also available through their common names as listed here. If you want
to run GOssTo with a specific annotation file, you will have to download the stand alone version and run it locally. For more details see the
GOssTo website at PaccanaroLab.
Every annotation matches a gene product to one or more Gene Ontology terms. This matching can be supported by different types of evidence,
which is reflected by the use of different evidence codes
(for more information see the Gene Ontology site).
GOssTo will consider only the evidence codes selected in the list above, ignoring
all annotations with evidence codes that were not selected. In case the organism selected has zero annotations with the selected evidence codes,
GOssTo will not be able to produce any results, and the user will receive the result files indicating this problem.
We have pre-selected the experimental evidence codes for the annotations.
These evidence codes should provide the highest quality to the annotations.
