Table 1 Ontologies to be incorporated in a combinatorial phenotype ontology

From: Using ontologies to describe mouse phenotypes

Ontology Description URL
Adult anatomy The Anatomical Dictionary for the Adult Mouse [17] has been developed by Terry Hayamizu, Mary Mangan, John Corradi and Martin Ringwald, as part of the Gene Expression Database (GXD) [31] Project, Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI), The Jackson, Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME [14] [17]
Developmental anatomy The Anatomical Dictionary for Mouse Development has been developed at the Department of Anatomy, University of Edinburgh, Scotland (Jonathan Bard) and the MRC Human Genetics Unit, Edinburgh (Duncan Davidson and Richard Baldock) as part of the Edinburgh Mouse Atlas project (EMAP), in collaboration with the Gene Expression (GXD) project at MGI, The Jackson Laboratory, Bar Harbor, ME [31,32] [17]
Behavior Parts of behavior have been expressed in a consistent manner [13,17] [13]
Pathology The Pathbase mouse pathology (Paul Schofield) ontology provides a description of mutant and transgenic mouse pathology phenotypes and incorporates 425 known mouse pathologies hierarchically organized as 'instances of' pathological processes [33] [17]
Gene Ontology GO describes the roles of gene products and allows genomes to be annotated with a consistent terminology (The Gene Ontology consortium 2002) [2] [17]
