1.  The Sequence Ontology: a tool for the unification of genome annotations 
Genome Biology  2005;6(5):R44.
The goal of the Sequence Ontology (SO) project is to produce a structured controlled vocabulary with a common set of terms and definitions for parts of a genomic annotation, and to describe the relationships among them. Details of SO construction, design and use, particularly with regard to part-whole relationships are discussed and the practical utility of SO is demonstrated for a set of genome annotations from Drosophila melanogaster.
The Sequence Ontology (SO) is a structured controlled vocabulary for the parts of a genomic annotation. SO provides a common set of terms and definitions that will facilitate the exchange, analysis and management of genomic data. Because SO treats part-whole relationships rigorously, data described with it can become substrates for automated reasoning, and instances of sequence features described by the SO can be subjected to a group of logical operations termed extensional mereology operators.
