TAIR functional annotation data

Quarterly release of curated gene function data for Arabidopsis thaliana from The Arabidopsis Information Resource (www.arabidopsis.org)

The contents of the compressed archive include the following files which are described in detail in the included README file.


1.ATH_GO_GOSLIM.txt.gz
This document is a tab-delimited file containing GO annotations for Arabidopsis genes annotated by TAIR and TIGR with terms from the Gene Ontology Consortium controlled vocabularies (see www.geneontology.org). This file includes an updated set of literature based annotations and >40,000 electronic annotations based upon matches to INTERPRO domains supplied by Nicola Mulder from SWISS PROT/INTERPRO. 

Please cite this paper when using TAIR's GO annotations in your research:  Berardini, TZ, Mundodi, S, Reiser, L, Huala, E, Garcia-Hernandez, M, Zhang, P, Mueller, LM, Yoon, J, Doyle, A, Lander, G, Moseyko, N, Yoo, D, Xu, I, Zoeckler, B, Montoya, M, Miller, N, Weems, D, and Rhee, SY (2004) Functional annotation of the Arabidopsis genome using controlled vocabularies. Plant Physiol. 135(2):1-11.  


2.gene_aliases_yyyymmdd.txt(.gz)
This file lists alternative names for each gene.


3.Locus_Germplasm_Phenotype_yyyymmdd.txt.gz
This file contains links between loci, germplasms, and phenotypes. 

4.Locus_Published_yyyymmdd.txt.gz
This file contains links between loci and publications. 

5.po_temporal_gene_arabidopsis_tair.assoc.gz
po_anatomy_gene_arabidopsis_tair.assoc.gz
These two files are tab-delimited files. Each contains the 
set of literature-based annotations of Arabidopsis genes and loci annotated at TAIR to the terms from the Plant Ontology developed by the Plant Ontology Consortium (POC, www.plantontology.org).


6.TAIR10 or ARAPORT11_functional_descriptions_yyyymmdd.txt(.gz)
This file contains functional descriptions for gene  models included in either the TAIR 10 or as of 20170630 the Araport11 genome release. TAIR10/Araport11 refers to the version of the genome annotation.
