Evidence Ontology

Description: The Evidence Ontology (ECO) is a controlled vocabulary that describes types of scientific evidence within the realm of biological research that can arise from laboratory experiments, computational methods, manual literature curation, and other means. Researchers can use these types of evidence to support assertions about research subjects that result from scientific research, such as scientific conclusions, gene annotations, or other statements of fact.
