Online Taxonomic Key Application

"Welcome to Online Taxonomic Keys, a joint project of Fisheries and Oceans Canada and the Royal BC Museum. This project seeks to facilitate the development of, and make readily available, a variety of regional and global identification keys in a format that is concise and easy to use. The information presented is compiled from published and unpublished works from taxonomic specialists worldwide.

Biological Collections Ontology

"The Biological Collections Ontology (BCO) is an application ontology developed as part of the Biocode Commons project, within the OBO Foundry framework. The goal of the BCO is to support the interoperability of biodiversity data, including data on museum collections, environmental/metagenomic samples, and ecological surveys. The BCO covers distinctions between individuals, organisms, voucher specimens, lots, samples, the relations between these entities, and the processes governing the creation and use of 'samples'.

Human Phenotype Ontology

"The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) aims to provide a standardized vocabulary of phenotypic abnormalities encountered in human disease. Each term in the HPO describes a phenotypic abnormality, such as atrial septal defect. The HPO is currently being developed using the medical literature, Orphanet, DECIPHER, and OMIM. HPO currently contains approximately 11,000 terms and over 115,000 annotations to hereditary diseases. The HPO also provides a large set of HPO annotations to approximately 4000 common diseases.

Global Agricultural Concept Scheme

"GACS explored the possibility of creating a global repository of concepts and terminology in the area of agriculture. This first beta is the result of the first experimental attempt, and it went very well! We now have a pool of concepts based on a mapping between AGROVOC, the CAB Thesaurus and the NAL Thesaurus. An analysis of the the coverage of GACS beta with respect to AGROVOC showed that it could already be used to index AGRIS, with no significant loss of indexing concepts."
