UPDATE: Remaining Phenotype RCN funds have now been committed.

NEWS!!!! The Phenotype RCN has funds available to support graduate students, postdocs and other researchers and curators to attend ontology-related meetings this summer.

For example, the upcoming joint ICBO (International Conference on Biological Ontology) and BioCreative meeting (August 1 – 4, 2016; Oregon State University, Corvallis, OR, USA) would be an excellent venue to present phenotype ontology based work, as would various organismal and model-organism based meetings.

Please send an email to Andy Deans ( or Eva Huala ( if you are interested, indicating the meeting proposed, whether you are presenting, your current position (student, faculty, etc.), the amount of funds requested, and a 200-word statement regarding the value of the opportunity to you and the relationship to phenotype ontologies.
