Biological Spatial Ontology
An ontology for representing spatial concepts, anatomical axes, gradients, regions, planes, sides, and surfaces
An ontology for respresenting spatial concepts, anatomical axes, gradients, regions, planes, sides, and surfaces. These concepts can be used at multiple biological scales and in a diversity of taxa, including plants, animals and fungi. The BSPO is used to provide a source of anatomical location descriptors for logically defining anatomical entity classes in anatomy ontologies.
