Download GO Database

The Download GO Database allows you to download a current copy of the GO database and of Pfam 2 GO mappings from the Gene Ontology Consortium ( The GO database is used to convert Pfam annotation to GO terms by the Annotate CDS with Pfam Domains tool (see section Annotate CDS with Pfam Domains) and by the Build Functional Profile tool (see section "Build functional profile" ).

To run the tool, go to:

        Databases (Image databases_folder_closed_16_n_p) | Functional Analysis | Download GO Database (Image download_go_16_n_p)

The tool creates a new object called GO database (Image go_database_16_n_p) in the Navigation Area. If you select Create Report, the tool will also generate a summary report table. For each downloaded file, the table will contain the name of the downloaded file, its size, the URL from which is was downloaded, and the number of entries in the file.
