About goa_gubbar

goa_gubbar, or gene ontology annotation grouping under biochemical and biological activities and roles, is a tool for grouping protein hits under slim GOA terms, including all possible slim GOA for each protein and carrying forward abundance ratios and other statistical information on protein ratios in quantitative proteomics.

goa_gubbar takes as input a list of proteins, abundance ratios and standard deviations or uncertainty (from multiple peptides used in the relative protein quantitation).

The utility can be used to summarize protein identification datasets according to protein function or cellular location, as illustrated below.

This is tested and works under Linux and Windows/Cygwin.

Using goa_gubbar

Usage: goa_gubbar <protein expression ratios> <species GOA file> <GOA slim map> <slim OBO file> <output>

where <protein expression ratios> is a space delimited list of identified proteins, abundance ratios and standard deviations.

For an example species GOA file, see gene_association.goa_arabidopsis. The suitable corresponding slim OBO file is goslim_goa.obo and GOA slim mapping goaslim.map. These are available from the EBI Gene Ontology Annotation (GOA) Database (http://www.ebi.ac.uk/GOA/).
