Developing Community Phenotype Ontologies: Understanding Users' Preferences
This poster reports preliminary user-testing results on four different methods to add terms to a phenotype ontology. A total of 31 graduate students from UA iSchool and three senior botanists participated in two different experiments. Results suggest the Quick Form and WebProtege are preferred by biologists and WikiData and Wizard are not preferred for different reasons.
