Fwd: Canto, a tool for functional annotation

Hello all,

We are pleased to announce that Canto, the PomBase community literature 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,

Genetic and physical interaction annotation is also supported. Canto
captures all necessary information about each interaction for submission
to BioGRID.

Canto currently supports annotation export in JSON format, either by
individual paper or in bulk. Example data (from PomBase Chado loading

The JSON data from Canto can be loaded into a relational database using
the Chado schema (as at PomBase) or alternative schemas.

Basic GAF export is also supported for GO annotations.

For more information about Canto, including downloads and mailing list, please see the GMOD wiki:

The Canto website is at PomBase:

The code is available from GitHub:

Any questions or comments can be addressed to the Canto mailing list, http://gmod.org/wiki/Canto#Contacts_and_Mailing_Lists.

Please try out the demo and consider adding Canto to your toolkit!
