BACKGROUND Nucleotide and protein sequence feature annotations are essential to understand biology on the genomic, transcriptomic, and proteomic level. Using Semantic Web technologies to query biological annotations, there was no standard that described this potentially complex location information as subject-predicate-object triples. DESCRIPTION We have developed an ontology, the Feature Annotation Location Description Ontology (FALDO), to describe the positions of annotated features on… CONTINUE READING
