ready Ontology for Genetic Susceptibility Factor

Abbreviation: OGSF

General Information
Ontology for Genetic Susceptibility Factor (OGSF) is an application ontology to model/represent the notion of genetic susceptibility to a specific disease or an adverse event or a pathological biological process. It is developed using BFO 2.0's framework. The ontology is under the domain of genetic epidemiology. OGSF is built from a combination of three ontologies: the Ontology of Geographical Region (OGR), the Ontology of Glucose Metabolism (OGMD), and the Ontology of Genetic Disease Investigations (OGDI).
