Linking Evolution to Genomics Using Phenotype Ontologies:
Second Morphology Data Jamboree

A workshop hosted by the University of South Dakota and the National Evolutionary Synthesis Center (NESCent) through NSF-DBI "Phenoscape" grant funding.

Location and Date

Venue: South Dakota Radisson Hotel, Rapid City (Sept. 27-29) Sylvan Lake Lodge, South Dakota (Sept. 29-Oct.1)

Date: September 27-October 1, 2008

Organizers: Paula Mabee, Monte Westerfield, Todd Vision, and Hilmar Lapp



  1. Evaluation of prototypes for web user interface
  2. Character data entry by experts; introduce new curators to Phenote and data entry; test/enhance curation consistency; further refine curation interface
  3. Project personnel meeting


See detailed agenda for the program for each day.
