GO::Species Annotation

In our annotation file, we currently have (or will have) annotations that reference these taxon IDs:

   taxon:273526 Serratia marcescens subsp. marcescens Db11
   taxon:652611 Pseudomonas aeruginosa PA14
   taxon:474186 Enterococcus faecalis OG1RF

The taxon IDs refer to specific strains of the bacteria used for testing host-pathogen interactions in C. elegans. They are included in GO annotations for terms like "response to Gram negative/positive bacterium".

It looks like we have ?Species objects for each of these bacteria, but corresponding taxon IDs are to the more general 'parent'.

It also looks like we have a ?Strain object, IGX2, for the Serratia strain, but not for the other two bacteria.

How would you like to reference these other taxon IDs? Should we create new ?Species objects that include the strain in the name?

Topic Curation
