Short Description
The foundation for building a KaBOB Knowledge Base of Biology
Full Description

The KaBOB Knowledge Base of Biology is a formal integration of biological knowledge using Semantic Web standards. Its knowledge is grounded in the community-curated Open Biomedical Ontologies, and it uses this ontological foundation to integrate information mined from a collection of biomedical databases with a concerted effort to model biology separate from database content. More information about KaBOB is available at the KaBOB GitHub page. The original publication describing KaBOB in detail is:

KaBOB: Ontology-Based Semantic Integration of Biomedical Databases
Kevin M Livingston, Michael Bada, William A Baumgartner Jr., and Lawrence E Hunter
BMC Bioinformatics. 2015 Apr 23;16:126. doi: 10.1186/s12859-015-0559-3. PubMed: 25903923

The source for the KaBOB-base container is available here. This container is capable of downloading and processing various biomedical databases to produce the RDF that is the seed for KaBOB. For setting up an instance of KaBOB and pairing the container described in this project with a triple store, see the project.
