OntoBrowser: a tool for curating ontologies and code lists by subject matter experts.

Ravagli, Carlo and Pognan, Francois and Marc, Philippe (2017) OntoBrowser: a tool for curating ontologies and code lists by subject matter experts. Bioinformatics, 33 (1). pp. 148-149. ISSN 1367-48031460-2059

Abstract

Lack of compliance of terminology and ontology usage leads to partial search results and poor inter-operability between databases. The source of the problem is often the difficulty of finding subject matter experts having time, skills and tools to facilitate curation. Existing mapping software are usually not intuitive and the process is time consuming.
The primary objective of OntoBrowser is to provide an easy to use online collaborative solution for subject matter experts, to map reported terms to preferred ontologies or controlled terminologies. Additional features include: web service access to data, visualization of ontologies in hierarchical/graph format, advanced search capabilities, peer review/approval workflow.
