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:
