Hi, I am wondering if Gene ontology has the same structure as KEGG or EC numbers. I am especially interested whether proteins that were assigned 0004817, 0004814 and 0004818 GO terms have similar function (some kind of 0004800 superfamily, more general function)? thank you for the answer

if you go on Amigo and select "Inferred tree view", you can see the structure for the GO term. In your case a more general GO term is GO:0004812.

@Martombo Is there a way to see general GO tree of groups - not specific to particular GO term ? I have heard that there is kind of directed graph of - the most high level GO-groups - then each splits to subgroups - and so on... I wonder where can I find such GO-graph of groups/caterogies ? Thanks in advance !

Here you can find an overview of the overall structure of GeneOntology. It cannot be described as a simple tree, it's not a strictly hierarchical graph. For this reason, it would be very difficult to have a general representation of the ontology. Or at least I don't know an easy way to have that.
