What is HPO?

Terminología HPO

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HPO) provides a standardized vocabulary of phenotypic abnormalities encountered in human disease. Each term in the HPO describes a phenotypic abnormality, such as Atrial septal defect. HPO currently contains over 13,000 terms and over 156,000 annotations to hereditary diseases.

The HPO is being used for computational deep phenotyping and precision medicine as well as integration of clinical data into translational research. Deep phenotyping can be defined as the precise and comprehensive analysis of phenotypic abnormalities in which the individual components of the phenotype are observed and described. The HPO is being increasingly adopted as a standard for phenotypic abnormalities by diverse groups such as international rare disease organizations, registries, clinical labs, biomedical resources, and clinical software tools and will thereby contribute toward nascent efforts at global data exchange for identifying disease etiologies.

The HPO has been translated into many languages including (in alphabetical order) Chinese, Dutch, French, German, Italian, Japanese, Portugese, Russion, Spanish, and Turkish. For more information, visit the official HPO website.
