The RICORDO project [overview] is focused on the study and design of a multiscale ontological framework in support of the Virtual Physiological Human community to improve the interoperability amongst its Data and Modelling resources. To this end, it aims to build directly upon the shared experiences and published recommendations emerging from the VPH Network of Excellence and ELIXIR initiatives.

RICORDO draws together a number of key databases at the UK-based European Bioinformatics Institute (ArrayExpress, Reactome, BioModels, EnsEMBL, UniProt, ChEBI) along with tools, methods and significant input from:
