Infectious Disease Ontology Kick-off Meeting

The upcoming Infectious Disease Ontology Workshop (see link below under "Meetings") is intended to be both a training workshop for participants and a forum through which we can establish a community for development, maintenance, and use of the Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO). The current agenda for the workshop can be viewed here.

In preparation for the workshop, we have prepared a draft infectious disease ontology and hope that workshop attendees will take time to comment on the ontology in advance of the workshop using the discussion page of this wiki. The ontology can be viewed here in pdf: File:IDO Draft.pdf. OBO edit and Protege OWL versions of the ontology are also available:

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