TreeGenes Phenotype and Structure Ontology Directory
TreeGenes is actively curating submitted traits and structures and assigning these traits to the following ontologies:
Plant Ontology (structure), Trait Ontology (traits), Crop Ontology (woody trait ontology), and PATO (descriptive ontology).
When possible, assignments are made to existing terms that are curated by the Planteome and Crop Ontology projects.
For terms that are not yet assigned to Assignment of individual measurements and structures to an ontological framework
provides improved recovery of data downstream for all users. This also enables comprehensive analytical pipelines that
can efficiently integrate across a multitude of independent studies. To submit your phenotype and/or genotype study,
please use the Tripal Plant Population Genetics Submit Pipeline.
We currently have 306 unique phenotypes described on 22 unique structures representing a total of 724265 phenotypic measures from 41451 samples representing 18 species.
