Evidence Codes Guide

Evidence codes are attached to an annotation to describe what type of evidence supports the association between the gene, QTL, strain or other data object and the ontology/vocabulary term.  Many evidence codes used at RGD come from the GO Consortium (http://www.geneontology.org/GO.evidence.shtml).  The following is a list of evidence codes that can be found in annotations at RGD:


Experimental Evidence Codes:

EXP: Inferred by EXPeriment
IAGP: Inferred by Association of Genotype with Phenotype
IDA: Inferred from Direct Assay
IED: Inferred from Experimental Data
IEP: Inferred from Expression Pattern
IGI: Inferred from Genetic Interaction
IMP: Inferred from Mutant Phenotype
IPI: Inferred from Physical Interaction
IPM: Inferred from Phenotype Manipulation

Computational Analysis Evidence Codes:

IBA: Inferred from Biological aspect of Ancestor
IBD: Inferred from Biological aspect of Descendant
IGC: Inferred from Genomic Context
IKR: Inferred from Key Residues
IRD: Inferred from Rapid Divergence
ISO: Inferred from Sequence Orthology
ISS: Inferred from Sequence or Structural Similarity
RCA: Inferred from Reviewed Computational Analysis

Author Statement Evidence Codes:

NAS: Non-traceable Author Statement
TAS: Traceable Author Statement

Curator Statement Evidence Codes:

IC: Inferred by Curator
ND: No biological Data available

Automatically-assigned Evidence Codes:

IEA: Inferred from Electronic Annotation
