Overview: The aim of the Genomic Standards Consortium (GSC) is to support the development of a genomic standard that captures a richer set of information about complete genomes and metagenomic datasets. An XML schema has been built and implemented as the Genome Catalogue database. The GSC is also working towards the development of controlled vocabularies for describing genomes and this work feeds into the OBI project (An Ontology for Biomedical Investigations).
