When different groups create models or ontologies of the same knowledge domain, this creates challenges for knowledge sharing. To identify these challenges, we compare cellular structure as modeled by the Foundational Model of Anatomy (FMA), the Gene Ontology (GO), and the Cell Component Ontology (CCO). Although these ontologies all model the physical anatomy of a cell, the actual differences among them are substantial. In this paper, we provide a description and analysis of these differences.
