GONUTS is the legacy home of CACAO!
The GONUTS wiki has been set up to provide third-party documentation for users of the Gene Ontology Project. The GO wiki is not an official product of the GO consortium. It was built by users at TAMU for newcomers to the Gene Ontology who want to explore GO usage. The rationale for this wiki is described in About GONUTS.

To browse the ontology pages, search for a term or visit the paramount GO page page and select a branch. For more information about how this wiki is automatically updated, see GO wiki scripts. For Help using the system, see Help:Contents, which is available in the navigation links from all pages.

Searching GONUTS

  • Enter some keywords into the search box on the upper right, and the wiki will look for matches in the GO terms or in the commentary. By default we search in the Categories, which is where the GO terms are, and in the Articles, which includes pages on genes from different organisms.
  • For more advanced users, see the Special:Search page, where you can set which namespaces are searched.
