As previously explained, structured biological annotation is the association of data with identifiers and ontologies taken from well-established bioinformatics resources. The use of structured biological annotation is not common practice in the electron microscopy or structural biology communities. Therefore, ontology experts were invited to the workshop to explain why these are useful and what resources and tools are available for assigning annotations. Use-cases such as mouse imaging data helped to explain the principles and practice of structured biological annotation. By the end of the meeting there was a clearer appreciation of the importance of structured biological annotation for searching and linking imaging data across different scales, between different imaging and structural databases and with other bioinformatics resources.”
