Contexts 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.

Synonyms Preferred Prefixes
Prefix Priority

This ordering of metaprefixes (i.e., prefixes for registries) is used to determine the priority of which registry's prefixes are used. By default, the canonical Bioregistry prefixes are highest priority.

URI Prefix Priority

This ordering of metaprefixes (i.e., prefixes for registries) is used to determine the priority of which registry's URI prefixes are used. By default, the canonical Bioregistry URI prefixes are highest priority.

Prefix Remapping

This is a mapping from canonical Bioregistry prefixes to custom prefixes used in this context.

Custom Prefix Map

This is a custom prefix map (which contains custom URL/URI expansions) that is added after all other logic is applied. Keys must either be canonical Bioregistry prefixes, prefixes used based on the given prefix priority, or values in the given prefix remapping.
