Workshop: Practical use of Uberon, the integrated cross-species anatomy ontology, April 5 & 6, Toronto

We are pleased to announce an Uberon workshop, satellite of the Biocuration2014 meeting, to be held in Toronto, Canada, on the 5th and 6th April 2014.

Uberon is an integrated cross-species anatomy ontology, representing a variety of entities classified according to traditional anatomical criteria such as structure, function, and developmental lineage. Uberon provides a necessary bridge between anatomical structures in different taxa for cross-species inference, allowing integration of model organism, human, and comparative morphology data.

This workshop will be user-oriented, and will be devoted to introducing and training participants to the use of Uberon. For more information and schedule, please see the workshop website:

Attendance is limited, and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The estimated registration fee is C$200. The registration page is available at:
