Title: Representing the Immune Epitope Database in OWL

Abstract: Vast amounts of biomedical information are stored in relational
databases. Several of these use ontologies to better communicate the meaning
and context of their data. However, most often ontology terms are only used
to represent in a limited number of fields in a database. An ontology, in
this context, essentially functions as a controlled vocabulary and few
formal relations are used between database fields. We argue that a full
representation of biomedical database content using a principled approach to
ontology, encoded using a formal language such as OWL provides significant
benefits. These include data consistency checks, the ability to formulate
highly expressive queries, and the potential for seamless interoperability
with other data resources. We report on our efforts to make such a
representation available for the Immune Epitope Database.
