Debugging Taxonomies and their Alignments: the ToxOntology - MeSH Use Case
2012 (English)In: Proceedings of the First International Workshop on Debugging Ontologies and Ontology Mappings / [ed] Patrick Lambrix, Guilin Qi, Matthew Horridge, 2012, 25-36 p.Conference paper (Refereed)
As part of an initiative to facilitate adequate identification and display of substance-associated health effects a toxicological ontology - ToxOntology - was created. Further, an alignent with MeSH was accomplished to obtain an indirect index to the scientific literature.
To arrive at satisfactory results in the semantically-enabled applications, high-quality ontologies and alignments are both necessary. A key step towards high quality in this area is debugging the ontologies and their alignments. In this paper we present an experience report on the debugging of ToxOntology and MeSH as well as an alignment.
