deprecated Microarray and Gene Expression Data Ontology


General Information
This record was deprecated on Feb. 25, 2016 for the following reason(s): This resource has been integrated into the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations and is no longer maintained.

The MGED Ontology is a top level container for the MGEDCoreOntology and the MGEDExtendedOntology. The MGED ontology describes microarray experiments and is split into the MGEDCoreOntology, which supports MAGE-OM v1.0 and is organized consistently with MAGE, and the MGEDExtendedOntology, which expands MAGE v1.0 and contains concepts and relationships which are not included in MAGE. Until this entry is claimed, more information on this project can be found at If you work on the project responsible for "MGED Ontology" then please consider helping us by claiming this record and updating it appropriately.
