Project Summary

In this project, we pursue ontology-based informatics research that focuses on the representation and use of process knowledge within biomedical applications. Our primary driving use case is with bio-simulation systems. We collaborate closely with bioengineers who build simulation models of biology ranging from blood flow to pathway-level molecular processes.

A primary work product has been the Ontology of Physics for Biology, as published in the BioPortal collection of biological ontologies. See our project home page for more information, including our project’s publications to date.

John Gennari and Daniel Cook co-lead this project.
