The FungalWeb Ontology: Application Scenarios


The FungalWeb Ontology aims to support the data integration needs of enzyme biotechnology from inception to product roll out. Serving as a knowledge base for decision support, the conceptualization seeks to link fungal species with enzymes, enzyme substrates, enzyme classifications, enzyme modifications, enzyme retail and applications. We demonstrate how the FungalWeb Ontology supports this remit by presenting application scenarios, conceptualizations of the ontological frame able to support these scenarios and semantic queries typical of a Biotech Manager. Queries to the knowledge base are answered with description logic (DL) and automated reasoning tools.
