CLINICAL MEASUREMENT - ANNOTATIONS

The Clinical Measurement Ontology (CMO), Measurement Methods Ontology (MMO), and Experimental Condition Ontology (XCO) are currently being developed at the Rat Genome Database. For more information about these vocabularies please see Shimoyama et al. Three ontologies to define phenotype measurement data. Front Genet. 2012;3:87.

Definition:The number of individuals in a study population which display colonic aganglionosis at a certain point in time compared to the total number of individuals in the study population, expressed as a percentage. Colonic aganglionosis is the absence of parasympathetic ganglion cells in any or all of the myenteric plexus, a network of autonomic nerve fibers within the tunica muscularis of the wall of the alimentary canal in general and of the colon in particular. The colon is the segment of the large intestine between the cecum and the rectum.
