Ontologies in MPD

Most phenotype measures are MPD-annotated to one or more phenotype ontology terms, to facilitate searching and analysis. The ontologies currently utilized include:

• Vertebrate Trait Ontology (VT) Navigate     Download
• Adult Mouse Anatomy Ontology (MA) Navigate     Download
• Mammalian Phenotype Ontology (MP) Navigate     Download

Usage example: An MPD search (blue box in upper right) on   VT:0010488   would lead to a result page like this.

Our data API can retrieve based on ontology terms too.

You can also do a keyword search examining all ontology terms regardless of whether the term is mapped to any MPD data or not.
