The Gene Ontologies

There are currently three gene ontologies, described in this table:

Molecular Function
the tasks performed by individual gene products; examples are transcription factor and DNA helicase
Biological Process
broad biological goals, such as mitosis or purine metabolism, that are accomplished by ordered assemblies of molecular functions
Cellular Component
subcellular structures, locations, and macromolecular complexes; examples include nucleus, telomere, and origin recognition complex
