Augmenting Bioinformatics Research with Biomedical Ontologies
MetadataShow full item record
The main objective of the reported study was to investigate how biomedical ontologies, logically structured representations of various aspects of the biomedical reality, can help researchers in analyzing experimental data. The dissertation reports two attempts to construct tools for the analysis of high-throughput experimental results using explicit domain knowledge representations. Furthermore, integrative efforts made by the community of Open Biomedical Ontologies (OBO), in which the author has participated, are reported, and a framework for consistently connecting the Gene Ontology (GO) with the Taxonomy of Species is proposed and discussed.
