Many ontologies have been developed in biology and these ontologies increasingly contain large volumes of formalized knowledge commonly expressed in the Web Ontology Language (OWL). Computational access to the knowledge contained within these ontologies relies on the use of automated reasoning. We have developed the Aber-OWL infrastructure that provides(More)
BACKGROUND Reasoning over biomedical ontologies using their OWL semantics has traditionally been a challenging task due to the high theoretical complexity of OWL-based automated reasoning. As a consequence, ontology repositories, as well as most other tools utilizing ontologies, either provide access to ontologies without use of automated reasoning, or(More)
Ontologies are formal theories that specify the kinds of entities and relations found in a domain. To quickly gain access to the content and structure of ontologies, ontology visualization techniques are commonly used. Visualization of ontologies often uses representations of hierarchical structures that are extracted from ontologies, most notably(More)
A large number of ontologies have been developed in the biological and biomedical domains, which are mostly expressed in the Web Ontology Language (OWL). These ontologies form a logical foundation for our knowledge in these domains, and they are in widespread use to annotate biomedical and biological datasets. The use of the semantics provided by ontologies(More)
MIREOT is a mechanism for the selective re-use of individual ontology classes in other ontologies. Designed to minimise effort and to support orthogonality, it is now in widespread use. The consequences for ontology integrity and automated reasoning of using the MIREOT mechanism have so far not been fully assessed. In this paper, we perform an analysis of(More)
The experience of hearing distressing voices has recently attracted much attention in the literature on psychological therapies. A new "wave" of therapies is considering voice hearing experiences within a relational framework. However, such therapies may have limited impact if they do not precisely target key psychological variables within the voice hearing(More)
The field of biological and biomedical science quickly generate large quantities of data and knowledge; often, domain knowledge is formalised using ontologies expressed in the Web Ontology Language (OWL). Ontology repositories such as Bioportal and Ontobee have been an important infrastructural component for managing ontologies, specifically to search,(More)
