The Adult Mouse Anatomy (MA) ontology provides standardized nomenclature for anatomical entities in the postnatal mouse.
Structured as a directed acyclic graph with 'is a' and 'part of' relationships, the MA organizes anatomical terms hierarchically from both spatial and anatomical systems perspectives.
MA terms and identifiers are being used to annotate and integrate different types of data pertinent to mouse anatomy such as gene expression patterns, biological processes, and information
about phenotypes and pathologies. The MA was developed and is being maintained and expanded as part of the Gene Expression Database (GXD) project
