ready Nuclear Magnetic Resonance Controlled Vocabulary

Abbreviation: nmrCV

General Information
nmrCV is a MSI-sanctioned NMR controlled vocabulary, created within the COSMOS EU project, to support the nmrML data standard for nuclear magnetic resonance data in metabolomics with standardized meaningful data descriptors. This CV is the successor of the (now deprecated) 'NMR-instrument specific component of metabolomics investigations' CV of 2006. This standard is currently financed via the PhenoMeNal EU project. It is a simple taxonomy build according to the same design principles as its role model artefact, the Mass Spec CV of PSI.

Related Databases (4)
MetaboLights is a database for metabolomics studies, their raw experimental data and associated metadata. The database is cross-species and cross-technique and it covers metabolite structures and their reference spectra as well as their biological roles and locations. MetaboLights is the recommended metabolomics repository for a number of leading journals and ELIXIR, the European infrastructure for life science information.

The Human Metabolome Database
The Human Metabolome Database (HMDB) is a database containing detailed information about small molecule metabolites found in the human body.It contains or links 1) chemical 2) clinical and 3) molecular biology/biochemistry data.

Biological Magnetic Resonance Databank
BMRB collects, annotates, archives, and disseminates (worldwide in the public domain) the important spectral and quantitative data derived from NMR spectroscopic investigations of biological macromolecules and metabolites. The goal is to empower scientists in their analysis of the structure, dynamics, and chemistry of biological systems and to support further development of the field of biomolecular NMR spectroscopy.

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.
