ready Anatomical Entity Ontology


General Information
The AEO ontology of anatomical structures is a resource to facilitate the increase in knowledge in anatomy ontologies, supporting annotation and enabling compatibility with other anatomy ontologies. The ontology can be used to classify most organisms as its terms are appropriate for most plant and fungal tissues. It is envisaged that in future the ontology will include more non-animal anatomical terms.
