The GOA (Gene Ontology Annotation) project provides high-quality Gene Ontology (GO) annotations to proteins in the UniProt Knowledgebase (UniProtKB) and International Protein Index (IPI). This involves electronic annotation and the integration of high-quality manual GO annotation from all GO Consortium model organism groups and specialist groups.

This resource is a provider. This means that while it may have its own prefix, it actually reuses the identifiers provided by the uniprot prefix. For all use cases, you should use uniprot instead of goa.

Pattern for Local Unique Identifiers

Local identifiers in Gene Ontology Annotation Database should match this regular expression:
^(([A-N,R-Z][0-9][A-Z][A-Z, 0-9][A-Z, 0-9][0-9])|([O,P,Q][0-9][A-Z, 0-9][A-Z, 0-9][A-Z, 0-9][0-9]))|(URS[0-9A-F]{10}(_[0-9]+){0,1})|(EBI-[0-9]+)$

Example Local Unique Identifier
P12345   Resolve
Pattern for CURIES

Compact URIs (CURIEs) constructed from Gene Ontology Annotation Database should match this regular expression:
^goa:(([A-N,R-Z][0-9][A-Z][A-Z, 0-9][A-Z, 0-9][0-9])|([O,P,Q][0-9][A-Z, 0-9][A-Z, 0-9][A-Z, 0-9][0-9]))|(URS[0-9A-F]{10}(_[0-9]+){0,1})|(EBI-[0-9]+)$

Example CURIE
goa:P12345

Providers

Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE None:P12345 is used to demonstrate the provides available for this resource. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic logic beyond string formatting.
