An ontology-based annotator web service methodology that can annotate a piece of text with ontology concepts and return annotations in OWL. Currently, the annotation workflow is based on syntactic concept recognition (using concept names and synonyms) and on a set of semantic expansion algorithms that leverage the semantics in ontologies. The paper also describes an implementation of this service for life sciences and biomedicine. Our biomedical annotator service uses one of the largest available set of publicly available terminologies and ontologies. We used it to create an index of open biomedical resources.
