The Bio-Ontologies SIG provides a forum for discussion of the latest and most innovative research in the appplication of ontologies and more generally the organisation, presentation and dissemination of knowledge in biomedicine and the life sciences. Bio-Ontologies has existed as a SIG at ISMB for 17 years, making it one of the longest running.
The 2014 meeting will be a two day meeting (July 11 and July 12) co-located with ISMB 2014 in Boston, with July 12th being the “Phenotype Day” (http://phenoday2014.bio-lark.org/) which will be a joint session with the Bio-Link SIG focused on the systematic description of phenotypic variation. Phenotype Day will bring together researchers across many disciplines to discuss phenotype-related issues and resources, and to share their experience with defining, representing, processing and using phenotype data.
The JBMS supplement from the 2013 meeting is now published.
