Meeting: Working Group

Date9-Apr-2006 ~ 11-Apr-2006
ProjectTowards an integrated database for fish evolution
SummaryThe focus of our second Working Group will be on tying homology relationships into anatomy, taxonomy, and phylogeny ontologies. We will begin technical discussions of developing taxonomy ontologies and how to reference anatomy using such ontologies. We will also talk through the coding of multiple systematic characters using two ontologies (Anatomy and PATO). The development of the proof of concept prototype will be reviewed.

Representatives: University of South Dakota, University of Oregon, John Carroll University, Academy of Natural Sciences, Tulane University, Field Museum of Natural History, University of Minnesota.
