Building a bioinformatics ontology using OIL
This paper describes the initial stages of building an ontology of bioinformatics and molecular biology. The conceptualisation is encoded using the Ontology Inference Layer (OIL), a knowledge representation language that combines the modelling style of Frame-Based systems with the expressiveness and reasoning power of Description Logics. This paper is the second of a pair in this special issue. The first described the core of the OIL language and the need to use ontologies to deliver semantic bioinformatics resources. In this paper, the early stages of building an ontology component of a bioinformatics resource querying applicationn are described. This ontology holds the information about molecular biology represented in bioinformatics resources and the bioinformatics tasks performed over these resources. It, therefore, represents the metadata of the resources the application can query. It also manages the terminologies used in constructing the query plans used to retrieve instances f...
