About

The GFBio TS is the terminological backbone of the GFBio project. The GFBio project is funded by the Deutsche Forschungsgemeinschaft (DFG) under the grant No. SE 553/7-1. The Terminology Service is being developed within the GFBio task 7.4 "7.4 Terminology Management" as part of the work package 7. The work is performed in cooperation with WP5 for content mobilization.
