Description: BioXSD defines exchange formats of basic bioinformatics types of data. It is a rich, but not too complicated XML-Schema-based format for biopolymer sequences, feature records, alignments, references to resources, and identifiers. Semantics of BioXSD type definitions is given via SAWSDL annotation with EDAM, RDFS, and DublinCore. In addition, BioXSD supports rich annotation of data by any public ontology concepts.
