ready Anatomical Entity Ontology

Abbreviation: AEO

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.

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.
