The Orthology Ontology

The need of a common ontology for describing orthology information in biological research communities has led to the creation of the Orthology Ontology (ORTH) on the basis of the best practices in ontology engineering. This ontology was developed in the Web Ontology Language (OWL) using Protégé. The OWL file is publicly available at http://purl.org/net/orth.
