APPLYING TERMINOLOGICAL METHODS AND DESCRIPTION LOGIC FOR CREATING AND IMPLEMENTING AN ONTOLOGY ON INHIBITION

Sine Zambach, Bodil Nistrup Madsen

Abstract

By applying formal terminological methods to model an ontology within the domain of enzyme inhibition, we aim to clarify concepts and to obtain consistency. Additionally, we propose a procedure for implementing this ontology in OWL with the aim of obtaining a strict structure which can form the basis for reasoning and further processing, and we compare a semi-formal terminological concept modelling approach with a formal Description Logic approach in OWL-DL.
