ready Neglected Tropical Disease Ontology

Abbreviation: NTDO

General Information
The Neglected Tropical Disease Ontology (NTDO) aims at representing classes and relations to a specific set of diseases which persist in exactly the physical, psychosocial and economic situation of the poorest, most marginalized populations of the developing world, the Neglected Tropical Diseases (NTD). The current focus of NTDO is related to the transmission of vector-borne diseases and how they are related to the death. NTDO is based on BioTop (main classes and relations) and GFO (Time Representation) and represented in Description Logics (DL). NTDO includes information about the proper disease, its causative agent (when available), dispositions, and the geographic location the disease happens. In addition, NTDO includes a generic attempt to identify the process which leads a person to death, due to NTDs or other diseases. NTDO was built with a rich set of axioms and the intended usage is related to Health Surveillance of NTD-related morbidity and mortality cases.
