Ontologies in the biomedical domain are becoming a key element for data integration and search. The usefulness of the applications which use ontologies is often directly influenced by the quality of ontologies, as incorrect or incomplete ontologies might lead to wrong or incomplete results for the applications. Therefore, there is an increasing need for repairing defects in ontologies. In this paper we focus on completing ontologies. We provide an algorithm for completing the is-a structure in TeX ontologies which covers many biomedical ontologies. Further, we present an implemented system based on the algorithm as well as an evaluation using three biomedical ontologies.
