“The Open Biomedical Ontologies project (OBO) has created a new mailing list for the discussion of ontological  representation of taxonomies and phylogenies.  The OBO Foundry supports the development of orthogonal, interoperable reference ontologies for biological science.

The Phenoscape project is funded by NSF-BDI  and supported by the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) to develop methods and tools for using ontologies to integrate comparative morphological data with mutant phenotypes of genetic model  organisms.  As such we are very interested in participation from  members of the evolutionary biology community to explore how best to  integrate taxonomy into an ontological framework.  Issues include proper semantics of the relationship between taxonomic groups, and  between specimens and species”.
