Question 3a Ontology Value     (1A47)

"Data interoperability: The representation of biological knowledge in databases is a necessity for modern biomedical research. Historically, there has been very little collaboration or coordination between different database providers. Although many grandiose schemes for the "integration" of biological data-bases have been proposed over the years, none have been practical to the point of implementation. Yet the need for integration remains, as many biologists, both those at the bench and those who analyse data computationally, wish to integrate data from a diversity of sources. The Gene Ontology Consortium (GOC) began, some several years ago, to develop a resource that could be used by both the model organism databases (e.g. FlyBase, WormBase, Mouse Genome Da-tabase, The Arabidopsis Information Resource) and the large "horizontal" databases (e.g. Uni-Prot, GeneDB, TIGR Gene Index) as a standard for the annotation of gene products. Out of this experience aros e the Open Biomedical Ontologies (OBO) Foundry collaboration whose goal is to produce well-structured vocabularies for shared use across different biological and medical domains. Those involved agree in advance to the adoption of a growing set of principles specifying best practices in ontology development. These principles are designed to foster interoperability to ensure a gradual improvement of quality and formal rigor in ontologies, in ways designed to meet the increasing needs of data and information integration in the biomedical domain."     (1A48)
