We are pleased to announce that Canto, the PomBase community curation tool, is now a GMOD component.
Canto is an online tool that supports functional gene annotation by
community researchers as well as by professional curators. It provides a simple interface to gather genetic and molecular data from publications for inclusion in public biological databases.
Curation in Canto uses OBO ontologies, and the specific set of ontologies
is configurable upon setup. The PomBase Canto instance currently uses GO, PSI-MOD and FYPO.
Genetic and physical interaction annotation is also supported. Canto captures all necessary information about each interaction for submission
