Resource:Subcellular Anatomy Ontology

Name: Resource:Subcellular Anatomy Ontology
Description: Ontology that describes structures from the dimensional range encompassing cellular and subcellular structure, supracellular domains, and macromolecules.

It is built according to ontology development best practices (re-use of existing ontologies; formal definitions of terms; use of foundational ontologies). It describes the parts of neurons and glia and how these parts come together to define supracellular structures such as synapses and neuropil.

Molecular specializations of each compartment and cell type are identified. The SAO was designed with the goal of providing a means to annotate cellular and subcellular data obtained from light and electron microscopy, including assigning macromolecules to their appropriate subcellular domains. The SAO thus provides a bridge between ontologies that describe molecular species and those concerned with more gross anatomical scales. Because it is intended to integrate into ontological efforts at these other scales, particular care was taken to construct the ontology in a way that supports such integration.
