It is now the 1st OPEN Period for CACAO Fall 2017! It will end on Sunday September 24, 2017 at 11:59 pm CDT
This is your chance to make annotations OR challenge other team's annotations. You may also DEFEND or suggest improvements to your own annotations IF they have been challenged. Please note, although we ENCOURAGE challenges, an excess of identical challenges that do not appear to be applicable to the annotation or well thought out will be considered spam and ignored.

CACAO
the intercollegiate annotation competition!
The Community Assessment of Community Annotation with Ontologies (CACAO) is a competition for teams of undergrads around the world to improve the functional annotation of genes. CACAO was developed and is currently run at Texas A&M University, along with many other institutions. If you are interested in participating, please email us - ecoliwiki@gmail.com.

CACAO Fall 2015

Quick Links

  • Don't forget - no binding terms (i.e. DNA binding, etc) & no response to terms (i.e. response to heat, etc)
  • For more help on evidence codes:
Look through the helpful handouts for students, this includes printable documents

Participating schools

  • Texas A&M
  • Penn State

Lecture slides

Past background info is at the About CACAO page. Links to new material will be posted here.

Evidence codes you are permitted to choose from

  • Here's a list of the evidence codes that CACAO students may use:
  1. IDA: Inferred from Direct Assay
  2. IMP: Inferred from Mutant Phenotype
  3. IGI: Inferred from Genetic Interaction - requires with/from field to be filled in
  4. ISS: Inferred from Sequence or Structural Similarity - almost always requires with/from field to be filled in
  5. ISO: Inferred from Sequence Orthology - requires with/from field to be filled in
  6. ISA: Inferred from Sequence Alignment - requires with/from field to be filled in
  7. ISM: Inferred from Sequence Model - requires with/from field to be filled in
  8. IGC: Inferred from Genomic Context

ALL other codes, even if used correctly, will cause the annotation to be rejected by the judges

Virus-related GO terms

  • For those of you interested in annotating proteins from viruses and phages:
