In order to meet our objectives, we need to create a common anatomy reference ontology (CARO) designed to ensure interoperability of the anatomy ontologies developed for specific organisms. This common ontology will comprehend both top-level categories and a common set of relations to be used within anatomical ontologies; CARO will be embedded in a  set of principles for constructing anatomy ontologies for different organisms at different developmental stages. The discussion will be based on a pre-version of CARO.

General Information

The National Center for Biomedical Ontology will host a two-day workshop focused on the Ontology of Anatomy. The workshop will take place on September 8-9, 2006 in Seattle. Preliminary discussions are posted here. Listserv archives are available here.

Participation

PLEASE NOTE THAT REGISTRATION IS CLOSED.

If you have any suggestions or questions about the workshop, please don't hesitate to contact Fabian Neuhaus.

Aim of the workshop

At the Workshop for the Ontology of Anatomy we want to gather researchers who are actively involved in the development and improvement of particular anatomy ontologies for a variety of organisms. Regardless of organism differences, if we use common methodologies and principles to build our ontologies then, ultimately, this will enable us to tackle the big issue: to recognize homologous anatomical structures of different species.

The main focus of this workshop is to pave the way for interoperability between the anatomical ontologies developed for various organisms (including human) by agreeing on shared methodologies for building our respective ontologies.

Its objectives are to develop:

1. a list of relations (especially part_of) used within anatomical anatomies, including definitions and rules for consistent use within anatomy ontologies ;

2. a list of major organizational units of biological organisms at all levels of granular partitions (e.g. biological macromolecule, cell, organ);

3. a representation of developmental stages of organisms; are anatomy and development two separate or one single integrated ontology? If separate what are the relations between them and how should they be applied;

4. a method that allows automated reasoners to recognize homologous anatomical structures of different species.

In order to meet our objectives, we need to create a common anatomy reference ontology (CARO) designed to ensure interoperability of the anatomy ontologies developed for specific organisms. This common ontology will comprehend both top-level categories and a common set of relations to be used within anatomical ontologies; CARO will be embedded in a set of principles for constructing anatomy ontologies for different organisms at different developmental stages. The discussion will be based on a pre-version of CARO.

Issues to be addressed include:

  • The Range of CARO and its relation to species specific anatomies
  • Relations and development in CARO
  • The top level CARO universals
  • Concrete steps to implement CARO
