JBMS Paper: Nose to tail, roots to shoots: spatial descriptors for phenotypic diversity in the Biological Spatial Ontology
Spatial terminology is used in anatomy to indicate precise, relative positions of structures in an organism. While these terms are often standardized within specific fields of biology, they can differ dramatically across taxa. The Biological Spatial Ontology standardizes the description of spatial and topological relationships across taxa to enable the discovery of comparable phenotypes.
JBMS Paper: Unification of multi-species vertebrate anatomy ontologies for comparative biology in Uberon
Our paper on the unification of multiple vertebrate anatomy ontologies has been published in JBMS
This paper describes the development of the renal portion of the Gene Ontology and subsequent annotation and analysis
This release includes some improvements to the representation of buccinator, orbicularis oris and digastric muscles, based on the Mammalian Feeding ontology FEED. A number of improvements were made to the skeletal system, continued implementation a standard pattern for endocondral bones with particular attention to the ribs and vertebrae. A number of new classes for a variety of systems have been added, including term requests for ENCODE. This release also marks the debut of the platypus bill.
A summary of changes and additions in the representation of the appendicular system (limbs and fins) since May 2013
We are pleased to announce an Uberon workshop, satellite of the Biocuration2014 meeting, to be held in Toronto, Canada, on the 5th and 6th April 2014
Uberon and Cell Ontology recommended for Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS)
The NIH Library of Integrated Network-based Cellular Signatures (LINCS) project aims to create a network-based understanding of biology by cataloging changes in gene expression and other cellular processes that occur when cells are exposed to a variety of perturbing agents...
