Our project is to develop and support a reference ontology repository for the agronomic domain. By reusing the NCBO BioPortal technology, we have already designed and implemented a prototype ontology repository for plants and a few crops. We plan to turn that prototype into a real service to the community. The AgroPortal project aims at reusing the scientific outcomes and experience of the biomedical domain in the context of plant, agronomic and environment sciences. We will offer an ontology portal which features ontology hosting, search, versioning, visualization, comment, but we will also offer services for semantically annotating data with the ontologies, as well as storing and exploiting ontology alignments and data annotations. All of these within a fully semantic web compliant infrastructure. The main objective of this project is to enable straightforward use of agronomic related ontologies, avoiding data managers and researchers the burden to deal with complex knowledge engineering issues to annotate the research data. The AgroPortal project will specifically pay attention to respect the requirements of the agronomic community and the specificities of the crop domain. We will first focus on the outputs of a few existing driving agronomic use cases related to rice and wheat, with the goal of generalizing to other Crop Ontology related use cases. AgroPortal will offer a robust and stable platform that we anticipate will be highly valued by the community.

The IRD (Institut de recherche pour le développement) is a multidisciplinary research institute dedicated to working closely with partner countries on global development issues. Placed under the joint supervision of the French Ministry of Research and the Ministry of Foreign Affairs and International
Development, the IRD uses an original approach on development research and expertise throughout its international network in over 90 countries. The IRD aims at using its research and tools for the benefit of countries that make science and innovation the prime levers for development.

Bioversity International is a global research-for-development organization. We have a vision – that agricultural biodiversity nourishes people and sustains the planet.

We deliver scientific evidence, management practices and policy options to use and safeguard agricultural and tree biodiversity to attain sustainable global food and nutrition security.

We work with partners in low-income countries in different regions where agricultural and tree biodiversity can contribute to improved nutrition, resilience, productivity and climate change adaptation.
