. There is a large number of online documents data sources available nowadays. The lack of structure and the differences between formats are the main difficulties to automatically extract information from them, which also has a negative impact on its use and reuse. In the biomedical domain, the DISNET platform emerged to provide re-searchers with a resource to obtain information in the scope of human disease networks by means of large-scale heterogeneous sources. Specif-ically in this domain, it…

Technological advancements have brought the need to analyse and evaluate the potentially negative impact that technologies might have on individuals, society and the environment. More and more voices



The Human Disease Ontology 2022 update

This update reports on the addition of 1,793 new disease terms, a 14% increase of textual definitions and the integration of 22 137 new SubClassOf axioms defining disease to disease connections representing the DO’s complex disease classification.

ECO, the Evidence & Conclusion Ontology: community standard for evidence information

The Evidence and Conclusion Ontology contains terms (classes) that describe types of evidence and assertion methods that are used in the process of biocuration to capture the evidence that supports biological assertions.

DISNET: a framework for extracting phenotypic disease information from public sources

The validation of the DISNET system is suggested, suggesting that it is good enough to be used to extract diseases and diagnostically-relevant terms and that improvements could be introduced to enhance the system’s reliability.

The Semanticscience Integrated Ontology (SIO) for biomedical research and knowledge discovery

The Semanticscience Integrated Ontology is an ontology to facilitate biomedical knowledge discovery that provides an ontological foundation for the Bio2RDF linked data for the life sciences project and is used for semantic integration and discovery for SADI-based semantic web services.

OBO Foundry in 2021: operationalizing open data principles to evaluate ontologies

This work demonstrates how a sizable federated community can be organized and evaluated on objective criteria that help improve overall quality and interoperability, which is vital for the sustenance of the OBO project and towards the overall goals of making data FAIR.

Bio-ontologies: current trends and future directions

The current position in ontologies is reviewed and how they have become institutionalized within biomedicine and what benefits it might bring to ontologies and their use within biomedical informatics.

The Unified Medical Language System (UMLS): integrating biomedical terminology

The Unified Medical Language System is a repository of biomedical vocabularies developed by the US National Library of Medicine and includes tools for customizing the Metathesaurus (MetamorphoSys), for generating lexical variants of concept names (lvg) and for extracting UMLS concepts from text (MetaMap).

The Human Phenotype Ontology in 2021

Recent major extensions of the Human Phenotype Ontology for neurology, nephrology, immunology, pulmonology, newborn screening, and other areas are presented and new efforts to harmonize computational definitions of phenotypic abnormalities across the HPO and multiple phenotype ontologies used for animal models of disease are presented.
