Hundreds of biomedical ontologies have been produced, with many of the significant, widely used ones being developed in collaborative efforts and following a set of construction principles, which include using a systematic naming convention for their labels. Despite their success, many of these ontologies have lacked a foundation of axioms that would expose the wealth of knowledge in the ontologies to computational reasoning. Our previous results suggest that exploiting the structure on the labels may contribute to an axiomatic enrichment. Hence, in this work we perform a study of the structure of the labels of the ontologies available in BioPortal to classify them in terms of potential interest for axiomatic enrichment.

More about this publication?
  • Current Bioinformatics aims to publish all the latest and outstanding developments in bioinformatics. Each issue contains a series of timely, in-depth reviews written by leaders in the field, covering a wide range of the integration of biology with computer and information science.

    The journal focuses on reviews on advances in computational molecular/structural biology, encompassing areas such as computing in biomedicine and genomics, computational proteomics and systems biology, and metabolic pathway engineering. Developments in these fields have direct implications on key issues related to health care, medicine, genetic disorders, development of agricultural products, renewable energy, environmental protection, etc.

    Current Bioinformatics is an essential journal for all academic and industrial researchers who want expert knowledge on all major advances in bioinformatics.
