Ontology Submissions:

Would you please consider adding the following ontology to BioPortal:

EDAM (EMBRACE Data and Methods) is an ontology of general bioinformatics concepts, including topics and data types, formats, identifiers and operations. 
EDAM provides a controlled vocabulary for description in semantic terms of things such as:

Web services e.g. WSDL files
Tool collections and packages
Work-benches and workflow software
Databases and ontologies
XSD data schema and data objects
Data syntax and file formats
Web portals and pages
Resource catalogues
Documents such as scientific publications
The goal is to provide, at a coarse level at least, a vocabulary for all the general (non-specialised) topics, data types, formats, identifiers and operations that are of common use in bioinformatics.

Sincerely yours,
Dorothy Reilly
