GOChase-II: correcting semantic inconsistencies from Gene Ontology-based annotations for gene products

Yu Rang Park, Jihun Kim, Hye Won Lee, Young Jo Yoon, Ju Han Kim
2011 BMC Bioinformatics  
Methods: To determine the semantic inconsistencies in GO annotation, we used the hierarchical structure of GO graph and tree structure of NCBI taxonomy.  ...  The numbers of gene products and species in a database that are related to the complexity of database management are also in correlation with the inconsistencies.  ...  Background The Gene Ontology (GO) project started to provide semantic standards for the annotation of molecular attributes of genes and gene products [1] .  ...

Tripartite Flavour Model: Food Phenotype, Sensory and Interpretative Matrices

Tarini Naravane, Matthew Lange
2018 International Semantic Web Conference  
Together these three matrices represent an initial ontological model for the flavor and sensory experience portion of the emerging semantic web of food.  ...  Flavor, and the pleasure it engenders, is the primary driver of food choice.  ...  Conclusion The semantic web of food critically depends on digital models of flavour for enabling predictive outcomes from food production, transformation, and ingredient combination processes relative  ...
