This research is supported by the National Institute of Dental and Craniofacial Research under Grant No. 1U01DE020050-01.
The FaceBase Consortium needs standardized terminologies to describe the quantitatively defined phenotypes, so they may be related to non-quantitative information. The goals of this new subproject are to develop an Ontology of Craniofacial Development and Malformation (OCDM), and to demonstrate its usefulness for both the parent project and the FaceBase consortium as a whole. The primary demonstrations will be: 1) precise phenotype annotation through consistent naming and quantification, and 2) integration of multiple sources of data.
