ready OBO Format Syntax and Semantics

Abbreviation: OBO Format


General Information
The first part of this specification describes the syntax and structure of OBO Format using BNF. This states how strings of characters in OBOF Files are parsed into abstract OBO documents, and describes constraints on the structure of these documents. The second part of this specification describes the semantics of an OBO document via a mapping to OWL2-DL and community metadata vocabularies.

Implementing Databases (8)
FlyBase
Genetic, genomic and molecular information pertaining to the model organism Drosophila melanogaster and related sequences. This database also contains information relating to human disease models in Drosophila, the use of transgenic constructs containing sequence from other organisms in Drosophila, and information on where to buy Drosophila strains and constructs.

Simple Modular Architecture Research Tool
SMART (Simple Modular Architecture Research Tool) is a web resource providing simple identification and extensive annotation of protein domains and the exploration of protein domain architectures. It allows the identification and annotation of genetically mobile domains and the analysis of domain architectures. More than 500 domain families found in signalling, extracellular and chromatin-associated proteins are detectable. These domains are extensively annotated with respect to phyletic distributions, functional class, tertiary structures and functionally important residues. Each domain found in a non-redundant protein database as well as search parameters and taxonomic information are stored in a relational database system. User interfaces to this database allow searches for proteins containing specific combinations of domains in defined taxa.

PomBase
PomBase is a model organism database that provides organization of and access to scientific data for the fission yeast Schizosaccharomyces pombe. PomBase supports genomic sequence and features, genome-wide datasets and manual literature curation as well as providing structural and functional annotation and access to large-scale data sets.

Virus Pathogen Database and Analysis Resource
The Virus Pathogen Database and Analysis Resource (ViPR) is an integrated repository of data and analysis tools for multiple virus families, supported by the National Institute of Allergy and Infectious Diseases (NIAID) Bioinformatics Resource Centers (BRC) program. ViPR captures various types of information, including sequence records, gene and protein annotations, 3D protein structures, immune epitope locations, clinical and surveillance metadata and novel data derived from comparative genomics analysis. The database is available without charge as a service to the virology research community to help facilitate the development of diagnostics, prophylactics and therapeutics for priority pathogens and other viruses.

FlyMine
FlyMine is an integrated database of genomic, expression and protein data for Drosophila, Anopheles and C. elegans. Integrating data makes it possible to run sophisticated data mining queries that span domains of biological knowledge.

Planteome
A resource providing data on bioentities and their associated ontology terms for Plant Biology. The database provides access to ontology-based annotations of genes, phenotypes and germplasms from about 90 plant species. A number of internal and external ontologies are used to annotate the biological data available from this resource.

AgroPortal
The AgroPortal project reuses the biomedical domain’s semantic tools and insights to serve agronomy, but also food, plant, agriculture and biodiversity sciences. We offer a portal that features ontology hosting, search, versioning, visualization, comment, and recommendation; enables semantic annotation; stores and exploits ontology alignments; and enables interoperation with the semantic web. The AgroPortal specifically satisfies requirements of the agronomy community in terms of ontology formats (e.g., SKOS vocabularies and trait dictionaries) and supported features (offering detailed metadata and advanced annotation capabilities). The AgroPortal content is automatically retrieved by FAIRsharing.org (https://fairsharing.org/) and the Agrisemantics Map of Data Standards (http://vest.agrisemantics.org/).

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.
