2. Presentation of the site
Mission: Goals
URL: http://sig.biostr.washington.edu/overview/index.html
The Digital Anatomist Project is motivated by the belief that anatomy is the basis of all the biomedical sciences (including clinical medicine). Manifestations of health and disease can be regarded as attributes of anatomical structures ranging in size from molecules to body parts. Therefore our goal is to represent anatomy in a comprehensive and consistent way, which should meet the needs of all biomedical applications that require anatomical knowledge.
  (25 Aug 2011) - Link

We believe that such an 'intelligent' anatomical model is a requirement for next-generation applications in biomedical research and clinical medicine.
