An ontology annotation system has been added to the BLT to enable robust searching capabilities.
The ontologies to be integrated into the annotation system are: EDAM , SWO, and NGSOnto.
EDAM is an ontology of concepts that are prevalent within bioinformatics,
including types of data, data identifiers, data formats, operations and topics (http://edamontology.org/).
The Software Ontology (SWO) is a resource for describing analytic tools, their types, tasks,
data requirements and provenance (http://theswo.sourceforge.net/).
NGSOnto is an ontology to describe workflows from DNA extraction to contigs in a
Whole Genome Sequence experiment (http://darwin.phyloviz.net/~msilva/NGSonto/).
