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.

Usage Notes

  • In order to use this term, the experimental evidence must include figures that show that the gene is upregulated in the stress conditions, and that the organism cannot survive without the protein.
  • When using this term, use IEP as the evidence code.

In certain (rarer) cases other ECs (IMP, etc) may be acceptable.
