O. Bodenreider
2006 Briefings in Bioinformatics  
He has co-chaired the annual bio-ontologies meeting at ISMB for many years and is a co-developer of a highly successful OWL training course.  ...  We review this trend and what benefits it might bring to ontologies and their use within biomedicine. interests include terminology, knowledge representation and ontology in the biomedical domain, both  ...  Later in the article, the future direction of these current trends will be explored. It is not possible in such an article to do justice to all the resources available.  ...

Measuring the level of activity in community built bio-ontologies

James Malone, Robert Stevens
2013 Journal of Biomedical Informatics  
Measuring additions, deletions and changes, together with release frequency, appear to be useful metrics of activity and useful pointers towards future behaviour.  ...  Overall, we show that it is possible to objectively measure the activity in an ontology and to make some prediction about future activity. by which an OBO Foundry ontology should be built, one of which  ...  The authors thank 'girlwithglasses' without whom much work in bio-ontologies would not have happened.  ...

Exploring the Development and Maintenance Practices in the Gene Ontology

Shuheng Wu, Besiki Stvilia
2014 Advances in Classification Research Online  
The Gene Ontology (GO) is one of the most widely used and successful bio-ontologies in biomedicine and molecular biology.  ...  The study found that GO has developed various tools and mechanisms to gain expert feedback and engage various communities in developing and maintaining the Ontology in an efficient and less expensive way  ...  Among many of the current bio-ontologies, the Gene Ontology (GO) is one of the most successful, and has been widely used for text mining and information extraction (Blaschke, Hirschman, & Valencia, 2002  ...
