Open Biomedical Ontologies


Open Biomedical Ontologies
The Open Biomedical Ontologies (OBO) project is a coordinated international collaborative effort to define standards and methodologies for the development of ontologies and controlled vocabularies in the life sciences. The OBO project defines the OBO Format for ontology serialisation and the OBO Edit tool for ontology editing and visualisation. They provide the OBO Foundry, a web registry for orthogonal and interoperable domain reference ontologies, which include the Gene Ontology and ChEBI.
