From Meta-Omics Data of Collection Objects
Jump to: navigation, search

The intention of MOD-CO (meta-omics data of collection objects) is to develop and elaborate a comprehensive namespace schema and assigned integrative controlled vocabularies to describe the full spectrum of observation and measurement elements as well as the procedural steps in the frame of the metagenomic, metatranscriptomic, and metametabolomic characterization of environmental collection samples.

These sets of terms and vocabularies should include descriptors for meta-omics analysis targets, environmental collection objects, metagenomics data generation devices and protocols, data types, formats and storage, and should be able to describe representing primary and secondary meta-omics data analysis.

Existing ontologies and concepts, distributed in literature, published methods and thesauri will be compared and evaluated for their possible use in the MOD-CO context.
