GOTaxExplorer is available as download. This version includes binaries of all programs that are necessary to build GOTaxDB from the flat files. Additionally, FSST is made available with an included embedded database. The FSST database contains all pairwise simRel scores between Gene Ontology terms contained in the current GOTaxDB release. If you are interested only in one of the ontologies (biological process, molecular function, cellular component) it may be possible to provide a smaller version of the database.
In such cases, please contact us at: gotax [at] mpi-inf [dot] mpg [dot] de.
