VERTEBRATE TRAIT ONTOLOGY - ANNOTATIONS

The Vertebrate Trait Ontology (VT) is being developed as a collaborative effort between the Rat Genome Database at the Medical College of Wisconsin (RGD, http://rgd.mcw.edu), Mouse Genome Informatics at the Jackson Laboratory (http://www.informatics.jax.org/) and the Animal QTL database at Iowa State University (http://www.animalgenome.org/cgi-bin/QTLdb/index). For more information about this vocabulary, or to request additions or changes, please contact us (http://rgd.mcw.edu/contact/index.shtml).

Definition:Any measurable or observable characteristic related to the shape, structure, color, or pattern of the cavity in each of the cerebral hemispheres derived from the cavity of the embryonic neural tube; they are separated from each other by the septum pellucidum, and each communicates with the third ventricle by the foramen of Monro, through which also the choroid plexuses of the lateral ventricles become continuous with that of the third ventricle.
