I am desperately looking for a gene onthology database file, that contains the GO Number and the corresponding category (molecular function/biological process/cellular component). How do I retrieve such a list?

All that info is contained in the GO.obo file available from here: GO download page It's not a tabular file, so processing is a bit cumbersome

'category' is denoted as 'namespace' in that file btw.

Glad that you found the solution. Best of luck.

GeneSCF will be simple to extract all the terms and corresponding genes as plain text (table format).

I'm just wondering if you checked your search engine first before coming to Biostars?

I just went to google.co.uk, typed download gene ontology, and the second hit was this: Where can I view or download the complete sets of GO annotations?, i.e., a FAQ page hosted on the Gene Ontology itself.

Best of luck

exactly. But there is not a single file that has the information about the category...

Yes, they do have the categories.

Take a look here (linked from the page to which I linked in my post, above): Download GO annotations.

In the Filtered Annotation File Downloads section, download the 5 megabyte file for Homo sapiens that has GO terms annotated for 19 473 genes. In this file, Column 8 has 3 possible values:

  • C, Celllular Component
  • F, Molecular Function
  • P, Biological Process

Also take a look here to better understand the GO Evidence Codes: A: Go annotation reliability ?
