Human Phenotype Ontology

New format for the HPO annotation data

New format for the HPO annotation data

The HPO team is planning to modernize the format of the annotation file (“phenotype_annotation.tab”). Here is a link to documentation about the planned change. http://hpo-annotation-qc.readthedocs.io/en/latest/annotationFormat.html Comments/suggestions/criticisms would be very welcome. Please respond to this GitHub issue: https://github.com/obophenotype/human-phenotype-ontology/issues/3393.

The legacy format will be maintained for several months or longer if requested by our users. The new format will have a few new fields and should not present major difficulties for those who will need to amend an HPO parser.

Thanks, The HPO Team
