The phenotypes of interest in this work are the features that vary across vertebrate taxa, and the features that are affected by genetic mutation in model organisms. One of our major goals is translating evolutionary phenotypes, which are described in free text in the literature, into ontology-based annotations in an efficient and scalable manner. The model organism phenotypes are curated into the model organism databases by their communities, and we integrate those into the Phenoscape Knowledgebase.
