We here provide a User Manual designed to explain the core functionality of OBI for newcomers, and to serve as a canonical reference for OBI developers. This is a work in progress, but we here provide a roadmap for the various functions that OBI is designed for.

This builds on information presented in the core OBI paper:

Bandrowski A, Brinkman R, Brochhausen M, Brush MH, Bug B, et al. (2016) The Ontology for Biomedical Investigations. PLOS ONE 11(4): e0154556. [doi]

  • Example Use Cases (how we describe specific use cases with OBI)
  • Implementation and Development Notes (how we develop, extend and implement the ontology)
  • Community (Description of the OBI development community. Who were are and what our goals are for this work)
