A prescriptive context contains configuration for generating fit-for-purpose prefix maps to serve various communities based on the standard Bioregistry prefix map, custom prefix remapping rules, custom URI prefix remapping rules, custom prefix maps, and other community-specific logic.

The proposal of new contexts and maintenance of existing contexts is governed by these rules and instructions.

Name Description
Open Biomedical Ontologies Context

The OBO Context exists for the following reasons:

  • Reconciling "database cross-references" used by OBO ontologies and centralising their validation.
  • Standardising and validating SSSOM mappings provided in the context of OBO ontologies.
  • Providing an incentive for the documentation of non-standard prefixes for OBO ontologies.
