Subject: Plant Ontology Consortium Web Site Open


>  On behalf of myself and my co-PIs, I am very pleased to announce that
>  the Plant Ontology Consortium Web site (http://www.plantontology.org)
>  is now open for business.  The POC is a multi-institution cooperative
>  effort to develop a robust and general controlled vocabulary of plant
>  anatomy and developmental terms.  We hope that the Plant Ontology
>  will become as useful for describing the site and timing of genes,
>  mutants and traits in plants as the Gene Ontology has been for
>  describing the subcellular location and function of genes.
>
>  Over the next year, the web site will act as the communications hub
>  for this project.  You will be able to review the current status of
>  the project, get the calendar of POC users' group meetings, browse
>  the developers' mailing list archives, and to search and download the
>  integrated Plant Ontology itself.  Most importantly, from the web
>  site you will be able to provide feedback to the project, because it
>  is only from your input that we will be able to create a robust and
>  general ontology.  Should you wish to become more involved with the
>  project (and you are very much encouraged to do so!), our contact
>  information is available at the web site.
>
>  Very truly yours,
