Introduction to the Gene Ontology
I led the seminar today, introducing the concepts of the Gene Ontology. This was a very light "getting to know you" lecture. My slides  focused on the the three sub ontologies, the commentaries that Smith et al and Rheer et al made with respect to their use and some questions about what a Directed Acyclic Graph means.
I am particularly interested in what the OBO is doing with respect to top level ontology development.
