Hi All

Just wondering if there are any existing ontologies(I wud guess there might be few) which capture the meta-data / data in next generation sequencing analysis /experiment. We are trying to store data/meta-data about NGS projects locally and rather than developing some controlled vocabulary of our own I was wondering if we could use something which is already out there.

Thanks! -Abhi

There is also an ontology for NGS QC terms (see http://code.google.com/p/qcml/source/browse/trunk/cv/qc-cv.obo) which is part of the qcML project (http://code.google.com/p/qcml/).
