Bioschemas Specifications

This page contains release versions of the Bioschemas specifications. Ongoing changes are published via the drafts page.

Should you wish to contact the community to discuss our efforts please email public-bioschemas@w3.org.

Profiles

The Bioschemas' profiles define a community agreed layer over the Schema.org model providing additional constraints. These constraints capture (i) the information properties agreed by the community which are minimum (M), recommended (R), or optional (O), (ii) the cardinality of the property, i.e. whether it is expected to occur once or many times, and (iii) associated controlled vocabulary terms drawn from existing ontologies.

Types

We have found it necessary to propose some additional types to the Schema.org vocabulary. These are specified below and are expected to be pushed up to Schema.org once they have stabilised. These types are used as the generic base for some of the profile specifications, such as protein. Again, working versions are published in the drafts page.
