Open Biological Ontologies

Tuesday 21 October 2003

OBO is n umbrella organization for structured shared controlled vocabularies and ontologies for use within the genomics and proteomics domains. This project has not yet categorized itself in the Trove Software Map.

Ontologies

Ontologies are specifications of domain concepts and their relationships. They are essential building blocks of well-designed knowledge-based systems. Although being high-level representations of abstract knowledge models, ontologies yet have to be mapped to some kind of object model in order to be used in an executable system.
