RFC001: Arabidopsis Data API controlled vocabulary draft specification

The Araport team has developed a lightweight controlled vocabulary for use in newly-created web service APIs. The objective is to minimize confusion among services when users are making related queries. We wish for the community to examine the initial draft before we commence work on using the specification in development of production web services.

The current draft can be found at the Araport GitHub.

Comments are open until May 30, 2015.

circadian clock components Kevin M. Folta To me, I think of circadian clock components that were relevant to the animal literature, that were found first in Arabidopsis. Even cry1 receptors are important in animals with a minor role in plants (at best).
