Edits to 'https://fairsharing.org/FAIRsharing.93ee19' by 'The FAIRsharing Team' at 11:11, 19 Sep 2016 (approved): 'description' has been modified: Before: AEO is an ontology of anatomical structures that expands CARO, the Common Anatomy Reference Ontology, to about 200 classes using the is_a relationship; it thus provides a detailed type classification for tissues. The new classes were chosen for their use in categorizing the major vertebrate and invertebrate anatomy ontologies at a granularity adequate for tissues of a single cell type. The ontology should be useful in increasing the amount of knowledge in anatomy ontologies, facilitating annotation and enabling interoperability across anatomy ontologies After: The AEO ontology of anatomical structures is a resource to facilitate the increase in knowledge in anatomy ontologies, supporting annotation and enabling compatibility with other anatomy ontologies. The ontology can be used to classify most organisms as its terms are appropriate for most plant and fungal tissues. It is envisaged that in future the ontology will include more non-animal anatomical terms. Organisations have changed: Previous values: New values: University of Oxford|UK

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.
