Description: The BioAssay Ontology (BAO) is an NIH-funded project to develop standard terminologies and a formal, extensible, knowledge-based description of biological assays and assay data (the ontology). Biocuration is a component of the BAO project to systematically annotate biological assays such as those in PubChem with standardized terminology describing assay concepts defined in the ontology. The BAO project also develops software tools to query and explore data sets in the context of the ontology.
