Gene Ontology Information

Genes in MGI are annotated using GO terms. Several of the MGI query forms (Genes and Markers Query Form, Linkage Map Query Form, Gene Expression Data Query Form, cDNA Clone Query Form), provide a Gene Ontology Classifications (GO) search field where you can enter a GO term or phrase for searching. Once you submit the query, the system checks the ontologies to be examined. To improve and refine your searches, you should become familiar with the available terms in the ontologies (see the Molecular Function, Cellular Component, and Biological Process links).

Each gene returned by the query is linked to a marker detail page with the associated ontology, GO term, evidence statement, and publication from which the annotation was discerned.

MGI queries return information about mouse genes. To access the GO annotations for many organisms, use the AmiGO browser.
