NSF Funds Development of Common Reference Ontologies and Applications for Plant Biology

NSF recently awarded funding to the Planteome Project (http://www.planteome.org), an international collaboration to support the development of 'Common Reference Ontologies and Applications for Plant Biology' for a three year period. The Project will develop a set of common data standards and universal reference vocabularies to describe and standardized plant gene and phenotype annotation workflow
