Overview     The Evidence Ontology is a controlled vocabulary of terms describing the evidence that supports assertions within Pathway/Genome Databases. The ontology currently contains 160 terms.

The Evidence Ontology was developed to provide a controlled vocabulary of terms for defining the different types of experimental and computational evidence that support assertions within Pathway/Genome Databases such as the MetaCyc database. Examples include evidence supporting predicted metabolic pathways and operons, and evidence supporting experimentally determined enzyme functions.
