SANBI, in collaboration with Electric Genetics announces the
availability of eVOC v1.4, a controlled vocabulary for describing the
source of samples used in gene expression experiments.
The ontologies are incorporated into the Ensembl Datamart, EnsMart,
( and will continue to be released in
synch with ENSmart.

Both the ontologies and the ontology-annotated cDNA libraries, with
associated ESTs, can be retrieved from

Users are encouraged to use the eVOC ontologies and to modify and adapt
them as required for their own research.
Comments, questions about, and contributions to eVOC can be posted to
the eVOC mailing list  - evoc at

Ontologies     (
The four orthogonal controlled vocabularies for describing the sample
source of materials used in gene expression experiments have been
updated and expanded.

A total of 8258 human cDNA libraries (Genbank freeze 138: 10 December 
2003) have been curated and annotated with eVOC terms across all four
