The epidemiology ontology: an ontology for the semantic annotation of epidemiological resources

Catia Pesquita, João D Ferreira, Francisco M Couto, Mário J Silva
2014 Journal of Biomedical Semantics  
Results: The EPO follows the OBO Foundry guidelines and uses the Basic Formal Ontology (BFO) as an upper ontology.  ...  Although several ontologies cover some of the subdomains of epidemiology, we identified a lack of semantic resources for epidemiology-specific terms.  ...  The authors are grateful to Mélanie Courtot for her comments and guidance on tailoring the Epidemiology Ontology to OBO Foundry principles.  ...

2009 Bioinformatics  
We applied the method to 595 expression experiments from Gemma, a resource for re-use and meta-analysis of gene expression profiling data.  ...  The most errorprone stage was the extraction of concepts from phrases. Final review of the annotations in context of the experiments revealed 89% precision.  ...  Many other ontologies or terminologies have these references and could be used in our system such as the Gene Ontology (Ashburner et al., 2000) , Medical Subject Headings (MeSHs), the NCI Thesaurus (  ...

Dependencies between ontology design parameters

C. Maria Keet
2010 International Journal of Metadata, Semantics and Ontologies  
Ontology development methodologies provide scenarios, but they do not address the dependencies between the permutations at the different stages in the development process.  ...  The parameters considered are: nine main purpose(s) of the ontology, reuse of the three main types of ontologies, eight different ways for bottom-up ontology development, eight ontology languages, and  ...  There are many terminologies and thesauri and a few of them are being adapted for the Semantic Web, such as the NCI Thesaurus 8 .  ...
