Date and Time:

Sunday, January 16th, Late Morning to include a buffet lunch

Time: 10:30-1:00 pm (will wrap up in time to get to 1:30 sessions)

Where: Town and Country Hotel, Hampton Room

Summary and Objectives:

The goal of the workshop is to develop and enrich collaborations with other groups in the Plant Sciences and to demonstrate the utility of the PO in annotating large plant genomics datasets.

- We will have 5 speakers from groups who are current or potential collaborators

- The goal is to show a range of uses and highlight the utility of the Plant Ontology to the plant science community.

- Each speaker will have about 10-15 minutes, including time for questions, (~ 5-10 slides)

- We will have a 'working lunch' where folks can mingle and continue discussions


10:30am: Welcome and Opening

Laurel Cooper, Coordinator, Plant Ontology Consortium

List of Speakers and Topics: Talks will be followed by time for discussion and networking lunch

  • 10:35am: Ramona Walls, Plant Ontology Consortium

Title: Introduction to the Plant Ontology- Where does my project fit in?


Title: Plant Ontology and the Maize B73 Gene Atlas Wisconsin 2010

Summary: The Plant Ontology is being utilized as MaizeGBD develops a Maize Gene Atlas. They are working on a large set of Nimblegen and RNA_Seq expression data, from 61 tissues, at various plant growth stages. These data will be added to the Plant Ontology's existing annotations.


Title: The Floral Genome/Ancestral Angiosperm/and Amborella genome projects- Challenges for Applying Ontologies.

Summary: An overview of their work on a number of basal species in the Floral Genome / Ancestral Angiosperm / and Amborella genome projects. This will include some of the results that have come along the from both developmental studies and transcriptome studies that may be of interest to plant ontology specialists. There are certainly some challenges for applying ontologies from other organisms on these plants, and work is needed to generate useful comparative ontologies. .


Title: MO - Moss/Bryophyte Ontology within PO

Summary: Stefan's group is developing a moss ontology. He will tell us about how they are developing the PO to MO mappings and annotating the Physcomitrella genome and transcriptome.


  • 11:25am: Nick Provart BAR

Title: Identification of Expressologs in Plant Species using Gene Expression Compendia

Media: Provart_PO.pdf

  • 11:40am: Ken McNally IRRI IRRI

Title: Ontological Implications from Sequencing the Global Rice Collections

Summary: Sequencing of genetic resource accessions in Rice. They are characterizing the 120,000 rice accessions (both genotypic and phenotypic diversity).
