General principles



At this time we cannot provide a future feature list as this will be decided by the members of the Open PHACTS Foundation. However, our primary aims are to:

  • Develop a robust infrastructure for data updates meaning users are always using "fresh" data
  • Increase the breadth of data in the system, covering more spaces in biomedicine
  • Develop interaction with other data services e.g. nanopublications and structured publisher content
