Re: Network format for Gene Ontologyby tfrayner (Curate)
|on Jan 03, 2003 at 14:37 UTC||Need Help??|
There is a Perl API available for working with MySQL GO databases in the go-dev CVS repository (the entire CVS tree can be downloaded in one go, although this gives you a lot of stuff you probably won't need). There is further documentation to be found at the Gene Ontology Software Group site).
There are also a couple of scripts available on the GO FTP site which work with the flat file format. They may give you some idea of how to proceed, should you need to stick with flat files for whatever reason.
Hope this helps,
Update: Turns out, the Perl API includes a module specifically for parsing GO flat files. Have fun :-)
