General Information
This record was deprecated on July 22, 2019 for the following reason(s): Deprecated after correspondence with FlyBase revealed this ontology was never adopted as a standard. FlyBase do not believe this standard has ever been in use.

"Fly taxonomy" provides taxonomic information about the Fruit fly family (Drosophilidae). This information is a combination of NCBI TAXON data and from the following paper: Grimaldi, D.A."A phylogenetic, revised classification of Genera in the Drosophilidae (Diptera)" Bulletin of the American Museum of Natural History. New York: New York . American Museum of Natural History, 1990.

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.
