ready Neuroscience Information Framework Subcellular Ontology

Abbreviation: NIFSUBCELL

General Information
NIF has developed a comprehensive vocabulary for annotating and searching neuroscience resources. A critical component of the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) project is a consistent, flexible terminology that can be used to describe and retrieve neuroscience-relevant resources. NeuroLex is built from our core OWL ontology, NIFSTD, in a modular fashion, with separate modules covering major domains of neuroscience: anatomy, cell, subcellular (the standard described in this record), molecule, function and dysfunction.
