An ontology is a suite of vocabulary phrases with explicitly acknowledged meanings and kin with different phrases. almost immediately, more and more ontologies are being outfitted and used for annotating facts in biomedical examine. due to the super volume of knowledge being generated, ontologies at the moment are getting used in several methods, together with connecting diversified databases, refining seek services, examining experimental/clinical info, and inferring wisdom. This state-of-the-art source introduces researchers to most recent advancements in bio-ontologies. The e-book offers the theoretical foundations and examples of ontologies, in addition to purposes of ontologies in biomedicine, from molecular degrees to medical degrees. Readers additionally locate info on technological infrastructure for bio-ontologies. This complete, one-stop quantity offers quite a lot of useful bio-ontology details, delivering pros special assistance within the clustering of organic facts, protein type, gene and pathway prediction, and textual content mining.

Example text

This list is not exhaustive, but the most prominent examples are highlighted. 1 Upper Ontologies Upper ontologies are often referred to as top ontologies or foundational ontologies. They strongly reflect the philosophical roots of ontological classification. They do not cover any specific domain or application, and instead make very broad distinctions about existence. An upper ontology would allow a distinction like continuant (things that exist, such as objects) versus occurrent (things that happen, such as processes), and hence, provide a way of being more specific about the fundamental differences between the two classes.
