Registry Ontology of Biological and Clinical Statistics

OBCS stands for the Ontology of Biological and Clinical Statistics. OBCS is an ontology in the domain of biological and clinical statistics. It is aligned with the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) and the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI). OBCS imports all possible biostatistics terms in OBI and includes many additional biostatistics terms, some of which were proposed and discussed in the OBI face-to-face workshop in Ann Arbor in 2012.
