We introduce a controlled natural language for biomedical queries, called BioQueryCNL, and present an algorithm to convert a biomedical query in this language into a program in answer set programming (ASP)---a formal framework to automate reasoning about knowledge. BioQueryCNL allows users to express complex queries (possibly containing nested relative clauses and cardinality constraints) over biomedical ontologies; and such a transformation of BioQueryCNL queries into ASP programs is useful… CONTINUE READING
