Navigating the ever-changing ocean of biological knowledge



The removal of annotation from biological databases is often taken to mean that the annotation was wrong in the first place. Why else would diligent biocuators remove information that had been painstakingly added to database entries? In our recent paper, 'GO annotation in InterPro: why stability does not indicate accuracy in a sea of changing annotations', we look at some of the diverse, data-driven changes that can underlie the deletion or update of Gene Ontology annotations in the InterPro database, and highlight some of the consequent effects of these changes on UniProt protein annotations. We also explain why these changes don't necessarily mean that the original annotations were unreliable. Alternatively, we argue that they signify a curation effort committed to annotation accuracy, attempting to navigate an ever-changing ocean of biological knowledge.

I suffered Hepatitis B for 11 years, I was very weak with pains all over my body my stomach was swollen and I could hardly eat. And one day my brother came with a herbal medicine from doctor Imoloa and asked me to drink and I drank hence there was no hope, and behold after 2 week of taking the medicine, I started feeling relief, my swollen stomach started shrinking down and the pains was gone. I became normal after the completion of the medication, I went to the hospital and I was tested negative which means I’m cured.
