deprecated Life Sciences Domain Analysis Model

Abbreviation: LS-DAM

General Information
This record was deprecated on Nov. 30, 2015 for the following reason(s): This record for the LS-DAM standard is deprecated as this standard is no longer actively maintained in it's own right as it has become subsumed into the BRIDG model standard.

The LS DAM v2.2.1 is comprised of 130 classes and covers several core areas including Experiment, Molecular Biology, Molecular Databases and Specimen. Nearly half of these classes originate from the BRIDG model, emphasizing the semantic harmonization between these models. Validation of the LS DAM against independently derived information models, research scenarios and reference databases supports its general applicability to represent life sciences research.
