Abstract

In this article we present the activities of the Ontology Working Group (OWG) under the Metabolomics Standards Initiative (MSI) umbrella. Our endeavour aims to synergise the work of several communities, where independent activities are underway to develop terminologies and databases for metabolomics investigations. We have joined forces to rise to the challenges associated with interpreting and integrating experimental process and data across disparate sources (software and databases, private and public). Our focus is to support the activities of the other MSI working groups by developing a common semantic framework to enable metabolomics-user communities to consistently annotate the experimental process and to enable meaningful exchange of datasets. Our work is accessible via a public webpage and a draft ontology has been posted under the Open Biological Ontology umbrella. At the very outset, we have agreed to minimize duplications across omics domains through extensive liaisons with other communities under the OBO Foundry. This is work in progress and we welcome new participants willing to volunteer their time and expertise to this open effort.
