This workshop introduces you to the Gene Ontology (GO) framework. Publications in molecular biology mostly lack a unified language to describe their hypotheses and findings; written in ‘natural’ language, they may be easier to read but are often difficult to compare. GO, in contrast, is a controlled language that enables describing molecular functions, cellular components, and biological processes across species. Thus, it highlights similarities between observations, avoids ambiguity, and fa...
