Well, you have to decide which database you believe!

For example, if you think Ensembl is correct, then use biomaRt

Subject: [BioC] gene count in a GO term

Hi list,

Please forgive if this was asked before.

In R, is there a way to find out how many Human gene products in a GO
term (including all its children) like those reported in AmiGo?  I'm
talking about ALL the gene products, not just those on a affy chip.  For
example, for GO:0005921 and children and its children, the number is 6.

Many thanks!
