ready Sample processing and separations controlled vocabulary

Abbreviation: sepCV

General Information
The sepCV is a controlled vocabulary for teminology associated with sample preparation and sample processing for proteomics. The sepCV was originally designed to provide terminology for the MIAPE GE reporting guidelines and the gelML data transfer format. It has now been expanded to include terminology for gel image informatics to support the MIAPE GI reporting guidelines and the GelInfoML data transfer format. In addition it includes relevant terminology for general sample processing to support the data transfer format of spML. The sepCV is beign jointly developed by the Proteomics Standards Intiative (PSI) and the Metabolomics Standards Intitative (MSI).

OBO Foundry
The Open Biological and Biomedical Ontology (OBO) Foundry is 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. To achieve this, OBO Foundry participants voluntarily adhere to and contribute to the development of an evolving set of principles including open use, collaborative development, non-overlapping and strictly-scoped content, and common syntax and relations, based on ontology models that work well, such as the Gene Ontology (GO). The OBO Foundry is overseen by an Operations Committee with Editorial, Technical and Outreach working groups.
