PMID: 21624164
DOI: 10.1186/2041-1480-2-S2-S9

[…] d analysed with the purpose of generating new hypothesis) cannot be passed to obi:hypothesis driven investigation (an investigation with the goal to test one or more hypothesis) (see also the classes expo:hypothesis forming investigation and expo:hypothesis generating investigation which have been introduced before OBI []).To overcome these difficulties both LABORS and DDI in addition to the class […]


Modeling biomedical experimental processes with OBI

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 2903726
PMID: 20626927
DOI: 10.1186/2041-1480-1-S1-S7

[…] ies has been successful in biological data integration and representation [,] and there have been multiple efforts to develop ontologies aimed at providing clearer semantics for data (GO, FuGO, MGED, EXPO, LABORS, MSI ontology) [-]. Work in the transcriptomics, proteomics and metabolomics communities has proceeded in parallel, producing ontologies with overlapping scopes.Though each focuses on par […]


Towards Robot Scientists for autonomous scientific discovery

PMCID: 2813846
PMID: 20119518
DOI: 10.1186/1759-4499-2-1

[…] between Adam and Eve's data and meta-data, as well as in the types of instruments used on the systems, so we plan to identify the common elements in both the LABORS and new Eve ontologies, and update EXPO to include this common understanding. […]


AlzPharm: integration of neurodegeneration data using RDF

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1892101
PMID: 17493287
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-8-S3-S4

[…] ies (e.g., microarrays, proteomics, and pathways) could be constructed. Examples in the biological domain include the Functional Genomics Investigation Ontology (FuGO) [], and Ontology of EXPeriment (EXPO) [].In research investigations that commonly span domains, such as neuroscience, providing the ability to construct upper ontologies and bridge ontologies is critical to interoperability. […]
