We are pleased to announce a Uberon workshop, satellite of the Biocuration2014 meeting, to be held in Toronto, Canada, on the 5th and 6th April 2014.
Uberon is an integrated cross-species anatomy ontology, representing a variety of entities classified according to traditional anatomical criteria such as structure, function, and developmental lineage. Uberon provides a necessary bridge between anatomical structures in different taxa for cross-species inference, allowing integration of model organism, human, and comparative morphology data.
This workshop will be user-oriented, and will be devoted to introducing and training participants to the use of Uberon. For more information and schedule, please see the workshop website:
Attendance is limited, and places will be allocated on a first come, first served basis. The estimated registration fee is C$200. The registration page is available at:

The organizers: Chris Mungall, Melissa Haendel, and Frederic Bastian
