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.
- The ORTH ontology version 2 specification is available at http://qfo.github.io/OrthologyOntology/
Issues and Activities
- The ORTH ontology 3rd version (release candidate 3a) that corrects identified issues in the ORTH ontology version 2 and includes the concept of Pangenomes.
- Orthology ontology change log to create the 3rd version (release candidate 3a) and the 2nd version release candidate (http://purl.org/net/orth_rc)
