An ontology of cell types built by biologists for the needs of data annotation and analysis. The main branch organizes and enumerates in vivo cell types. The Cell Ontology covers cell types from all of biology. The Cell Ontology is not A list of specific cell lines, immortal or otherwise, although the Cell Ontology may be used to describe such cells if they correspond to an in vivo cell type. A list of in vitro methods for preparing cell cultures, although the Cell Ontology may be used to
