ready Neuroscience Information Framework Subcellular Ontology


General Information
NIF has developed a comprehensive vocabulary for annotating and searching neuroscience resources. A critical component of the Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) project is a consistent, flexible terminology that can be used to describe and retrieve neuroscience-relevant resources. NeuroLex is built from our core OWL ontology, NIFSTD, in a modular fashion, with separate modules covering major domains of neuroscience: anatomy, cell, subcellular (the standard described in this record), molecule, function and dysfunction.

Implementing Databases (2)
Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF)
NIF maintains the largest searchable collection of neuroscience data, the largest catalog of biomedical resources, and the largest ontology for neuroscience on the web.

Gemma is a database for the meta-analysis, re-use and sharing of genomics data, currently primarily targeted at the analysis of gene expression profiles. Gemma contains data from thousands of public studies, referencing thousands of published papers. Users can search, access and visualize co-expression and differential expression results.
