The OMIT ontology in the OmniSearch project was developed in both the OWL and OBO formats.
The most up-to-date ontology files can be accessible here.
In this project, a reference ontology, NCRO, is also under development. NCRO stands for âNon-coding RNA Ontologyâ (pronounced as âan-ke-rowâ).
The NCRO ontology aims to provide a common set of terms and relations that will facilitate the curation, analysis, exchange, sharing, and management of ncRNA data. If research groups around the world utilize the NCRO to perform annotations on their ncRNA data, it will significantly enhance comparative analysis of the wealth of information from disparate sources.
All files for the NCRO ontology can be found here.
