List of unmatched glossary terms

From NCBO Wiki
Jump to: navigation, search

The follow list is of terms from the glossary of Being Alive,(an introductory textbook of molecular biology by Larry Hunter, forthcoming from MIT Press) that could not be matched to any OBO ontology term. About half of these are related to evolution or population biology. Some of these probably do not belong in an ontology at all (e.g. names of disciplines or research areas). Others are probably missing terms in an existing ontology. These mappings were done by Michael Bada and Larry Hunter in December of 2007.
