Ontologies are often seen as basic building blocks for the semantic web, as they provide a shared and reusable piece of knowledge about a specific domain. With the rapid development of semantic web, the scale and complexity of ontologies grow fast. The construction of large-scale ontologies will involve collaborative efforts of multiple developers. However,(More)
Ontology is the backbone of Semantic Web. Ontology has drawn more and more concerns with the research works developing in the Semantic Web. The construction of large-scale ontologies will involve collaborative efforts of multiple developers. In this paper, we give a demonstration of our Cooperative Ontology Development Environment CODE and discuss a demo(More)
Recent studies have shown that mesenchymal stem cells (MSCs) are expected to become promising therapeutic agents for the treatment of diabetic retinopathy (DR); moreover, we previously demonstrated that bone marrow (BM)-MSCs from nonobese diabetic (NOD) mice (an ideal DR model) had abnormal migration and adhesion. So, we hypothesized that NOD-MSCs also have(More)
BACKGROUND Suboptimal health status (SHS) is characterized by ambiguous health complaints, general weakness, and lack of vitality, and has become a new public health challenge in China. It is believed to be a subclinical, reversible stage of chronic disease. Studies of intervention and prognosis for SHS are expected to become increasingly important.(More)
The success of the Semantic Web strongly depends on the proliferation of ontologies, which requires fast and easy engineering of on-tologies. The paper analyzes the semantic similarity between relational model and ontology, and proposes a semi-automatic ontology acquisition method(SOAM) based on data in relational database. SOAM tries to ensure the quality(More)
