Epigenomics is crucial to understand biological mechanisms beyond genome DNA. To better represent epigenomic knowledge and support data integration, we developed a prototype Epigenome Ontology (EGO). EGO top level hierarchy and design pattern are provided with a use case illustration. EGO is proposed to be used for statistically analyzing enriched epigenomic features based on given sequence data input using statistical methods.
