OTO: Ontology Term Organizer
Fengqiong Huang, James Macklin, Paul J. Morris, Partha Pratim Sanyal, Robert A. Morris and Hong Cui
We believe biology ontologies should reflect the consensus of biologists. To promote consensus and assist the development of ontologies in biology domains, we implemented a web-based ontology term organizer (OTO) to collect grouping and relationship opinions from biologists. Besides is_a and part_of relations (the most frequently used relations in biology domains), OTO can also be used to sort out ordered values in any domain. A demo dataset OTO_demo has been set up at http://biosemantics.arizona.edu/ONTNEW. Use username OTOdemo and password OTOdemopass to login.
