ready Ontology of Microbial Phenotypes

Abbreviation: OMP

General Information
The Ontology of Microbial Phenotypes (OMP) is a community ontology for annotating microbial phenotypes, including bacteria, archaea, protists, fungi, and viruses. It has been created to help with standardized capture of essential phenotypic information. OMP is designed to be compatible with other microbial phenotype ontologies, such as the Fission Yeast Phenotype Ontology (FYPO) and the Ascomycete Phenotype Ontology (APO), and aims to standardize the capture of phenotypic information to allow improved cross-species data mining and analysis.
