[ Update this Record ]


Summary
Abstract: COBrA is an ontology browser and editor for GO and OBO ontologies. It has been specifically designed to be usable by biologists to create links between ontologies, and has the following features:

- allows drag-and-drop editing of GO ontologies
- supports mapping between two ontologies
- supports translation to OWL and other Semantic Web languages

COBrA allows the user to manually create links between terms in two ontologies. For example, links between tissues in an anatomy and the cell types of the tissues can be recorded and stored: these links are referred to as mappings.

COBrA supports reading and writing files in the following formats:

- Gene Ontology (GO) flat file format;
- DAGEdit flat file format;
- GO XML/RDF as defined: http://www.geneontology.org
- GO RDFS as defined: http://www.xspan.org/obo.rdfs
- OWL as defined: http://www.xspan.org/obo.owl
