Alignment API: Extension labels

The Alignment API provides the opportunity for applications to attach information which is not part of the format to alignments and correspondences (Cell). This extension mechanism is also used internally by the API for testing new techniques. We try to do our best for honouring these extensions: they are rendered and parsed in RDF/XML, they are stored in the Alignment Server database.

The annotations always contain string values, but it is good practice to declare if these values may be interpreted differently from strings.

In order to avoid conflicting use of the extension labels, it is strongly advised to package them in a particular XML namespace and to register them by us. Here is the list of currently known extension labels.

OMV Metadata

Ontology Metadata Vocabulary being a metadata ontology introduces many different labels that can be used in Alignment and correspondences but also defines it own sorts of objects that can be annotated.
