ready Ontology of Geographical Region

Abbreviation: OGR

General Information
This OWL ontology classified the geograhical regions related vocabularies extracted from UMLS. It must be used with other two ontologies, in the case of diabetes: the Ontology of Glucose Metabolism Disorder (OGMD) and the Ontology for Genetic Disease Investigations (OGDI). Together, these three ontologies form the Ontology for Genetic Susceptibility Factor (OGSF), which is the project where information about this ontology is stored.
