2) life sciences


2.a - biosharing (Oxford Univ.)

The web site gives a list of standards that can be used as model for data description or data indexation see 

information about Biosharing project 


2.b - bioportal (NCBO)

See  Bioportal is developped by the NCBO (National center for biomedical ontologies

Bioportal is a web-based application for accessing and sharing biomedical ontologies
