hi all,

some comments on the minutes.

"Possible overlaps with EFO ontology from EBI and OBI"

if i understand correctly, EFO was created because OBI was not finalized
yet and ArrayExpress at EBI is a live gene expression data repository and
the curators needed an ontology they could use.  i believe their plan is
to move to OBI or update EFO to reflect the relationship of terms in EFO
to terms in OBI.

"MGED may be part of OBI now"

MGED (www.mged.org) is a non-profit organization.  What is being referred
to as MGED on the HCLS web site is a predecessor to OBI which should be
called the MGED Ontology, also referred to as MO, that came out of an MGED
effort.  OBI is to replace MO.
