As shown in Figure 1, in the first loop, the number of neighbor proteins with GO annotations (D and E) interacting with unidentified protein A is 2, the GO annotation of protein D is 2, 3, 4 and the GO annotation of protein E is 1, 2, 6, and 7, only the annotation 2 in all the functional annotations of the neighbor proteins satisfies the condition of m/n [greater than or equal to] 75%, then annotation 2 was annotated to protein A.
