Ontology Development Group
The Ontology Development Group in the OHSU Library is an interdisciplinary group led by Dr. Melissa Haendel. An ontology is a formal representation of domain knowledge in the form of concepts and how they relate to each other within the domain.
Who are we?
- Bench scientists turned ontologists and biocurators
- Computer scientists turned bioinformaticians
- Medical practioners turned software developers
 Ontologist (on·tolo·gist n.) a domain expert who classifies information in a knowledgebase
 Biocurator (bio·cu·ra·tor n.) a professional scientist who collects, annotates, and validates data that is disseminated by biological databases or journals
ODG and the OHSU Library have hosted several working sessions to address data reproducibility and research communication. The goal is to promote interaction between information scientists and research scientists to support enhanced awareness of data stewardship. This event is funded by an award from Force11.
