Bioscience at

Welcome to our bioscience portal, where we will feature content and news about our program in biosciences.  Are you already a user?  Help us improve by taking this brief survey.

Our goal for the program is two fold:

1)  to introduce the bioscience community to open, web-based annotation;

2)  to explore specialized uses within the biosciences to inform future development.

Attention Biocurators:  Interested in controlled tagging using  We have developed some prototypes that allow to tag with controlled vocabularies and ontologies.  We’d like your feedback.  If interested, contact

Also, many in the community are developing tools using that handle more specialized use cases.  See what they are up to and add your own.

Upcoming Events:

International Biocuration Meeting, March 26-29, 2017, Stanford University

Hypothesis will once again participate in the Gigascience Annotation Challenge

Whether you are a researcher, student, educator, journal editor, funder or just a fan of bioscience, we think that can become an essential part of your work.
