ONTO-PERL - PERL modules for OBO-formatted ontologies
ONTO-PERL a collection of PERL modules for dealing with OBO-formatted ontologies (like the Gene Ontology). This code distribution gathers object-oriented modules (to handle ontology elements such as a Term, a Relationship, a Synonym, and so forth), scripts (for typical tasks such as format conversions: obo2owl, owl2obo; besides, there are also many examples that can be easily adapted for specific applications), and a comprehensive set of test files for ensuring its implementation quality.
