A collective of ontology developers that are committed to collaboration and adherence to shared principles. The mission of the OBO Foundry is to develop a family of interoperable ontologies that are both logically well-formed and scientifically accurate.
A collaborative effort to address the need for consistent descriptions of gene products across databases. The GO represents information about biological processes, cellular components and molecular functions.
A set of interoperable ontologies covering the infectious disease domain. At the core of the set is a general Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO-Core) of entities relevant to both biomedical and clinical aspects of most infectious diseases. Sub-domain specific extensions of IDO-Core provide coverage of entities relevant to specific pathogens or diseases.
A Community of Special Interest (COSI) of the International Society for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics (ISCB), addressing current research in the application of ontologies and the organization, presentation and dissemination of knowledge in biomedicine and the life sciences. #bioontologies on Twitter.
The International Conference on Biological Ontology series brings together representatives of all major communities involved in the development and application of ontologies in biomedicine and related areas. @ICBOconf on Twitter.
An international forum for the Semantic Web/Linked Data Community, bringing together researchers, practitioners and industry specialists to discuss, advance, and shape the future of semantic technologies.
An open, international, virtual community of practice devoted to advancing the field of ontology, ontological engineering and semantic technology, and advocating their adoption into mainstream applications and international standards. Sponsored by Ontolog:
