ready Observ-Tab

General Information
Observ-Tab is the tabular exchange format for Observ-OM. Observ-OM is a model to capture 'any' phenotype observation lead by ​EU-GEN2PHEN. Our mission mission: store individual and summary level observations in a uniform way to enable harmonization and interoperability of phenotypic and genotypic data across human genetics, model organisms and biobanks. Next to the object model we have an tabular exchange format Observ-TAB and user interfaces, search wizard, ​ontology links and Excel import/export.
