Cellular Microscopy Phenotype Ontology (CMPO): Quick tour


This quick tour provides a brief introduction to the Cellular Microscopy Phenotype Ontology (CMPO). It covers the scientific principles that led to the creation of this ontology and how it can be used.

An undergraduate knowledge of cell biology and biological imaging would be an advantage.

This quick tour was developed as part of the BioMedBridges project, funded by FP7 Capacities Specific Programme, grant agreement no. 284209.
