2018 International Conference on Biomedical Ontology  
The Rat Genome Database (RGD) has been annotating genes, QTLs, and strains to disease terms for over 15 years. During that time the controlled vocabulary used for disease curation has changed a few times. The changes were necessitated because no single vocabulary or ontology was freely accessible and complete enough to cover all of the disease states described in the biomedical literature.
