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.
