Ref: MGED ontology
Quick note to say that MGED ontology group is working with other 
communities towards an Functional Genomics Investigation Ontology 
(FuGO), for describing the design of an investigation, the protocols and 
instrumentation used, the data generated and the types of analysis 
performed on it: http://fugo.sourceforge.net
FuGO is being developed under the guidance of an advisory board, 
including OBO and cBIO leaders. FuGO will also be an OBO Foundry
