Integration of Protégé with Other Open Tools for Ontology Engineering
To integrate the WebProtégé ontology editor with other open source tools that together constitute an ecosystem that is used widely to develop and manage biomedical ontologies.
Protégé is the most widely used open source platform for ontology engineering in the world, with two separate open source systems: Desktop Protégé, which is used for editing ontologies locally, and WebProtégé, which is a cloud-based ontology editor. This project will work to develop new mechanisms for WebProtégé to integrate with the Ontology-Development Kit (ODK), which is a collection of ontology-engineering tools that provide automated support and integration with GitHub.
