Ontologies in Bioinformatics and Systems Biology
2004 (English)In: Artificial Intelligence Methods and Tools for Systems Biology / [ed] Werner Dubitzky and Francisco Azuaje, Springer Science+Business Media B.V., 2004, 5, 129-145 p.Chapter in book (Other academic)
Ontologies are being used in bioinformatics and systems biology, among others, for communication between people and organizations, as the basis for interoperability between systems, and as query models and indexes to repositories of information. In this chapter we give a background of the area and provide a state of the art overview. We present different possible definitions of ontology, examples of bio-ontologies and their use, formalisms that can be used to represent ontologies as well as tools that support the different stages in the life cycle of an ontology.
