CODO: An Ontology for Collection and Analysis of Covid-19 Data

  title={CODO: An Ontology for Collection and Analysis of Covid-19 Data},
  author={Biswanath Dutta and Michael DeBellis},
The COviD-19 Ontology for cases and patient information (CODO) provides a model for the collection and analysis of data about the COVID-19 pandemic. The ontology provides a standards-based open-source model that facilitates the integration of data from heterogeneous data sources. The ontology was designed by analysing disparate COVID-19 data sources such as datasets, literature, services, etc. The ontology follows the best practices for vocabularies by re-using concepts from other leading…
