Welcome to the EMBL-EBI Ontology Lookup Service
The Ontology Lookup Service (OLS) is a repository for biomedical ontologies that aims to provide a single point of access to the latest ontology versions. You can browse the ontologies through the website as well as programmatically via the OLS API. OLS is developed and maintained by the Samples, Phenotypes and Ontologies Team (SPOT) at EMBL-EBI.
In addition to OLS the SPOT team also provides the OxO, Zooma and Webulous services. OxO provides cross-ontology mappings between terms from different ontologies. Zooma is a service to assist in mapping data to ontologies in OLS and Webulous is a tool for building ontologies from spreadsheets.
