Updated Data:

-FlyBase D. melanogaster genome annotation updated to release 4.2.
-D. melanogaster and C. elegans gene associations are now taken from 
FlyBase and WormBase respectively.
-GOTerm entries now have a description, namespace ('biological_process', 
'cellular_component' or 'molecular_function') and a collection of synonyms.
-Go annotaions have been updated to make it easier to query for evidence 
codes and any related 'with' references.
