Controlled vocabularies and ontologies in proteomics: Overview, principles and practice☆

Biochim Biophys Acta
PMCID: 3898906
PMID: 23429179
DOI: 10.1016/j.bbapap.2013.02.017

[…] specify which checks the editor should perform during loading, saving or changing of an obo ontology file. Whereas OBO-Edit and OLS work only with files in the obo format, the Protégé editor and the OBO-Explorer support also OWL. Protégé furthermore supports the RDF(S) ontology format. With OLS one can either browse interactively through the ontologies by using the web interface or access them […]


GOMMA: a component based infrastructure for managing and analyzing life science ontologies and their evolution

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 3198872
PMID: 21914205
DOI: 10.1186/2041-1480-2-6

[…] ctural diff using heuristic matchers. Changes such as add, delete or split are represented in a difference table. Moreover, in the life science domain there are several tools including OBOEdit [] and OBO Explorer [] to edit ontologies. By contrast, we focus on the management of (existing) ontology versions, difference computation as well as ontology evolution analyses.Like OnEX [], studies [] and […]


The Cell Cycle Ontology: an application ontology for the representation and integrated analysis of the cell cycle process

Genome Biol
PMCID: 2718524
PMID: 19480664
DOI: 10.1186/gb-2009-10-5-r58

[…] knowledge. The semantic integration of knowledge creates synergy by allowing queries that would not otherwise be possible. For example, OBO ontologies can be queried by tools such as OBO-Edit [], the OBO Explorer [] and AmiGO [], but none of these can deal with a query such as 'return the orthologs of a protein X and include all the biological processes and molecular functions in which these ortho […]
