Ontologies provide a common platform of controlled vocabulary for researchers who need to share information across a particular domain, inclusive of machine-interpretable definitions of basic concepts in the domain and relations among them. The need for ontologies that provide a systematic arrangement of available data and allow cross talk across various related domains is gaining momentum. In this backdrop, we have developed a comprehensive ontology on primary and established cell lines-both normal and pathologic. It covers around 400 cell lines. This ontology has been built to include the major domains in the field of biology like anatomy, bio-molecules, chemicals and drugs, pathological conditions and genetic variations around the cell lines. An extensive network of relations has been built across these concepts to enable different combinations of queries. The ontology covers all cell lines from major sources like ATCC, DSMZ, ECACC, ICLC etc. and is built in OWL format.
The metaregistry provides mappings between the Bioregistry and other registries. There are
1 mappings to external registries for
1 unique external prefixes.
|Registry Name||Registry Metaprefix||External Prefix||Curate|
Providers are various services that resolve CURIEs to URLs. The example CURIE
is used to demonstrate the provides available for
mcc. Generation of OLS and BioPortal URLs requires additional programmatic
logic beyond string formatting.
