New Email List

Please subscribe to the Infectious Disease Ontology email list. Anyone can subscribe, and anyone can email the list. We plan to use the email list to discuss the addition of new terms and proposed changes to the current ontology. To subscribe, visit https://lists.duke.edu/sympa/. To email the list, write to ido@duke.edu.

Beginnings of an Infectious Disease Ontology

At the recent Infectious Disease Ontology Workshop (see below), we began preliminary work on a draft infectious disease ontology. OBO edit and Protege OWL versions of the ontology are available for download. Please send comments and suggestions to ido@duke.edu.

Accessible data to test the ontology, existing ontologies of related interest can be found here: Toolbox

Infectious Disease Ontology Meeting in Buffalo (September 16 - 17, 2008)

Details available here.

Past Meetings

Infectious Disease Ontology Kick-off Workshop (September 19 - 20, 2007) and Meeting (September 21, 2007)

The Infectious Disease Ontology Workshop and Meeting (see link below under "Past Meetings") were intended to serve as both a training workshop for participants and a forum through which to establish a community for development, maintenance, and use of the Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO). The workshop and meeting were supported by the Burroughs Wellcome Fund.
