Ontology Use Patterns Repository


This is a biomedical ontology use patterns repository intended to facilitate the curation, sharing, discovery, and use, of information about how OBO Foundry and other biomedical ontology resource are used by in practice to transform biomedical instance data into realist semantic representations.

By encouraging sharing of information about how ontologies are actually used with instance data, this resource can reduce the total effort by ontologies users to design and implement representations for use with their data. This will ultimately result in more widespread use of higher-quality representations, and in improved semantic interoperability of data.

This repository is implemented as a web application built and organized using semantic web technologies.
