The Protein Ontology (PRO) project is funded by NIGMS / NIH Grant 1 R01 GM080646-01, PI: Cathy Wu. The Aims of the project are:

Aim 1. Develop a Protein Evolution (ProEvo) ontology to describe proteins based on evolutionary relationships. In essence, ProEvo will reflect protein families (using sequence or structure similarities) in an ontology framework.

Aim 2. Develop a Protein Forms (ProForm) ontology to represent the multiple protein end-products from a gene. This will include "normal" and mutant forms, forms derived from different splice variants, and cleaved and post-translationally modified products.

Aim 3. Specify the relationships between the ProEvo, ProMod and other OBO Foundry ontologies. Several ontologies provide qualities that can be attributed to various forms of a protein or to an entire protein family. These qualities, in effect, can annotate the protein forms or families.

Aim 4. Disseminate PRO ontology, and demonstrate its usefulness in health-related research via scientific case studies.
