Abstract

The goal of the Plant Ontology™ Consortium is to produce structured controlled vocabularies, arranged in ontologies, that can be applied to plant-based database information even as knowledge of the biology of the relevant plant taxa (e.g. development, anatomy, morphology, genomics, proteomics) is accumulating and changing. The collaborators of the Plant Ontology™ Consortium (POC) represent a number of core participant database groups. The Plant Ontology™ Consortium is expanding the paradigm of the Gene Ontology™ Consortium (http://www.geneontology.org). Various trait ontologies (agronomic traits, mutant phenotypes, phenotypes, traits, and QTL) and plant ontologies (plant development, anatomy [incl. morphology]) for several taxa (Arabidopsis, maize/corn/Zea mays and rice/Oryza) are under development. The products of the Plant Ontology™ Consortium will be open-source. Copyright © 2002 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.
