Dave Clements said this would be the best place to ask my questions on
We are starting to annotate phenotypes in moss (www.cosmoss.org) and I
have read with great interest the recent paper about the ND extension of
In principle we want to integrate phenotypes from the literature and
link them to cosmoss genes and integrate data from large-scale
phenotyping experiments like it was recently done by Harnsomburana et al
Although, we're maintaining GO/PO annotations for our moss, I'm no
ontology expert and would greatly appreciate some startup advice.
In principal I want to generate EQ annotations and use an interface
like phenote (-syntax/xml) and feed it in a rich database schema where
I can either use existing interfaces or easily build web interfaces to
query data and make it available.
Am I correct to assume that CHADO is the way to go? Are there tools to
load pheno-syntax or phenoxml into Chado? Can I load OWL that includes
annotations (i.e. instances)?
What are the best to query ontology annotations either cmdline or web
