GOAssay - Gene Ontology Annotation of PubChem Assays

A joint collaboration with the University of Indiana.

An experiment to functionally annotate PubChem assays using the Gene Ontology Categorizer (GOCat). The assays are processed to filter out non functional information, then the textual content is sent to the categorizer, which provide a ranked list of GO descriptors based on a GOA-learned association model.
