The European Atherosclerosis Society, regularly publishes news from the OCL Functional Gene Annotation Group. 

In November this year, the group is celebrating its 10 year anniversary. The UCL Functional Gene Annotation team is based at the Rayne Institute, UCL. During the ten years the team has created over 52,000 GO annotations and 3,200 molecular interactions based on the review of over 6,300 experimental papers.

The Functional Gene Annotation team was originally set up as a project within the HUGO Gene Nomenclature Committee (HGNC) with funding from the Wellcome Trust. But funding from the British Heart Foundation enabled the project to become established as a group in its own right and begin the task of providing descriptive annotations for gene products relevant to cardiovascular disease. Since then funding by Parkinson’s UK and then Alzheimer’s Research UK has led to our annotation of gene products relevant to neurological diseases
