Title: Phenoscape Knowledgebase
Creator: Mabee, Paula; Vision, Todd
Abstract: The Phenoscape Knowledgebase is an expert system that enables the broad scale analysis of phenotypic variation across taxa and the co-analysis of these evolutionarily variable features with the phenotypic mutants of model organisms. Decades of comparative anatomical studies have resulted in a rich body of "free-text" data. As these data grow, they are increasingly hard to align and synthesize across taxonomic groups, and synthetic questions concerning the developmental and genetic basis of evolutionary changes in morphology cannot be easily or efficiently addressed. To analyze this volume of comparative anatomical data in a developmental genetic context, it must first be rendered computable. This can be achieved using ontologies, constrained structured vocabularies with logical relationships among terms. [Information of the supplier]
