- Branching organ development
- Axon-related CC terms
Work in progress
The ontology development group (including "core" members and ad hoc participants) has made a great deal of progress in several areas.
- We are continuing to review and release internal cross-products according to the plan we developed earlier.
GO and chemicals (ChEBI cross-products)
- Chemical terms in GO are being reviewed and revised for
- Internal consistency
- Consistency with ChEBI
- Metanephros term additions in progress
- Terms for pronephros and mesonephros planned
Additional biological topics
Other work in progress
- A review of the generic GO slim, with accompanying refinement of high-level terms, is continuing.
- Further work to add MF-BP part_of links
