A generic organ based ontology system, applied to vertebrate heart anatomy, development and physiology

By Laura M. F. Bertens, Joris Slob and Fons J. Verbeek


We present a novel approach to modelling biological information using ontologies. The system interlinks three ontologies, comprising anatomical, developmental and taxonomical information, and includes instances of structures for different species. The framework is constructed for comparative analyses in the field of evolutionary development. We have applied the approach to the vertebrate heart and present four case studies of the functionality of the system, focusing on cross-species comparisons, developmental studies, physiological studies and 3D visualisation
