The goals of this meeting are:

  • 1. To review the current state of the Protein Ontology and its relation to other protein-related information resources, especially UniProt and GO and to document these relations with a view to publication.
  • 2. To evaluate current competing approaches to gene annotation in PRO and in other OBO Foundry ontologies and to document the implications of this evaluation with a view to publication.
  • 3. To assess progress in the use of advanced computational techniques, including Natural Language Processing, in the development of the PRO.
  • 4. To examine the actual and potential contribution of PRO to the understanding of disease across organisms.
  • 5. To advance the treatment of protein-related clinical and translational data from the perspective of consistency, discoverability and support for diagnosis.
