Empowering the Enzyme Biotechnologist with Ontologies

Introduction

The FungalWeb Ontology is a knowledge representation vehicle designed to integrate information relevant to industrial applications of enzymes. The ontology integrates information from established sources and supports complex queries to the instantiated FungalWeb knowledge base. The ontology represents prototype Semantic Web technology customized to the domain of industrial enzymes with a focus on enzyme discovery, commercial enzyme products and vendors, and the industrial applications and benefits of industrial enzymes. Using a series of application scenarios we demonstrate the utility of this 'Semantic Web' infrastructure to the enzyme biotechnologist.
