EDAM is an ontology of well established, familiar concepts that are prevalent within bioinformatics, including types of data and data identifiers, data formats, operations and topics. EDAM is a simple ontology - essentially a set of terms with synonyms and definitions - organised into an intuitive hierarchy for convenient use by curators, software developers and end-users. EDAM is suitable for large-scale semantic annotations and categorisation of diverse bioinformatics resources. EDAM is also suitable for diverse application including for example within workbenches and workflow-management systems, software distributions, and resource registries.

The Software Ontology (SWO) is a resource for describing software tools, their types, tasks, versions, provenance and associated data. It contains SWO-specific classes and axioms as well as imported information from a variety of sources including OBI, IAO, BFO and EDAM. Please note that EDAM is imported as a whole and as such, some comments in the ontology header directly relate to EDAM only.
