ONS: an ontology for a standardized description of interventions and observational studies in nutrition

PMCID: 5928560
PMID: 29736190
DOI: 10.1186/s12263-018-0601-y

[…] s://fairsharing.org/bsg-s001068).To enhance interoperability with other ontologies, the ONS builds on a subset of the Ontology for Biomedical Investigations (OBI) []. The subset was created using the ONTODOG tool [] and is composed of all terms relevant to nutritional investigations and extended also in accordance with the bioinformatics infrastructure of ENPADASI. Moreover, this assured the adopt […]


The eXtensible ontology development (XOD) principles and tool implementation to support ontology interoperability

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 5765662
PMID: 29329592
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-017-0169-2

[…] pment is typically tedious and inefficient, especially when the structure of ontology is enormous. Over the years, we have developed a collection of web-based “Ontoanimal” tools including Ontofox [], Ontodog [], Ontorat [], Ontobee [], Ontobeep [], Ontobull [], Ontokiwi [], and Ontobat []. Each Ontoanimal tool has its specific functions, and the collective use of these tools enables users to cover […]


The Ontology of Biological and Clinical Statistics (OBCS) for standardized and reproducible statistical analysis

[…] OBCS imports the subset of OBI consisting of all statistics-related terms and associated parent terms using the Ontodog tool []. The Excel input data used for this purpose is available at: https://github.com/obcs/obcs/raw/master/docs/OBI_statisitics_subset.xlsx. To ensure valid reasoning, Ontodog was set to imp […]
