Ontologies are successfully used as semantic guides when navigating through the huge and ever increasing quantity of digital documents. Actually, they constitute the backbone of key functionalities such as indexing, retrieving, filtering and analyzing relevant information in a given context.
OntoToolkit aims at providing applications dedicated to ontology treatments that implement algorithmic solutions that we published.
Those tools are used by our applications (see softwares) but also by other projects:
- the OrthoMamm database – University of Montpellier, CNRS
- the French ANR project Phyl-ARIANE – University of Montpellier, University of Lyon
In these applications, OntoFocus is used to visualize GO concepts annotating genes.
