We believe biology ontologies should reflect the consensus of biologists. To promote consensus and assist the development of ontologies in biology domains, we implemented a web-based ontology term organizer (OTO) to collect grouping and relationship opinions from biologists. Besides is-a and part-of relations (the most frequently used relations in biology domains), OTO can also be used to sort out ordered values in any domain. A demo dataset OTO-demo has been set up at http://biosemantics.arizona.edu/ONTNEW. Use username OTOdemo and password OTOdemopass to login.
