The Life Science Training Materials specification provides a way to describe bioscience training material on the World Wide Web. It defines a set of metadata and vocabularies, built on top of existing technologies and standards, that can be used to represent events in Web pages and applications. The goal of the specification is to make it easier to discover, exchange and integrate life science training material information across the Internet.
Schema.org hierarchyThis is a new Profile that fits into the schema.org hierarchy as follows:
Thing > CreativeWork
Key to specification table
Schema.org properties where the Expected Types have been changed, or new (i.e., Bioschemas created) properties/types are green.
Schema.org properties/types are red.
Pending Schema.org properties/types are blue.
External (i.e., from 3rd party ontology) properties/types are black.
