The NanoCommons Knowledgebase,, is an essential component of nanoinformatics and based on an agreed ontology. NanoCommons has continued to expand and develop the eNanoMapper (ENM) ontology to aid toxicological data management for NMs [1]. Ontological mapping facilitates the organization, integration and reuse of data which suits the premise of less usage of animals for research purposes.
