The GO Consortium

The GO Consortium is the set of model organism and protein databases and biological research communities actively involved in the development and application of the Gene Ontology.

Members of the GO Consortium are expected to show a significant and ongoing commitment to the utilization and further development of the Gene Ontology. Full members should fulfill the following criteria:

staff funded to work on GO
regular submission of annotations to the GO Consortium resources [where applicable]
regular and significant contribution towards the content of GO


The Association for Computational Linguistics is THE international scientific and professional society for people working on problems involving natural language and computation. Membership includes the ACL quarterly journal,Computational Linguistics , reduced registration at most ACL-sponsored conferences, discounts on ACL-sponsored publications, and participation in ACL Special Interest Groups.

BioNLP is an initiative by the Center for Computational Pharmacology at the University of Colorado Denver Health Sciences Center to create and distribute code, software, and data for applying natural language processing techniques to biomedical texts. There are many projects associated with BioNLP.


The BioCreAtIvE (Critical Assessment of Information Extraction systems in Biology) challenge evaluation consists of a community-wide effort for evaluating text mining and information extraction systems applied to the biological domain.


The Linguistic Data Consortium supports language-related education, research and technology development by creating and sharing linguistic resources: data, tools and standards.
