ready Cigarette Smoke Exposure Ontology

Abbreviation: CSEO

General Information
The Cigarette Smoke Exposure Ontology (CSEO) is a specialized ontology of environmental exposure with particular focus on the description of the experimental elements and the impact that environmental exposure, e.g. cigarette smoke, poses to biological systems. Conceptualizing and organizing this knowledge domain in the form of ontology allows for: 1. Efficient augmentation of biological knowledge retrieval and extraction with improving the sensitivity to which biological mechanisms are modulated in response to different risk factors. 2. Integration of this ontology in internal processes to ensure clear annotation of experimental datasets coming from in-vitro, in-vivo, and ex-vivo experiments using such controlled vocabularies. This will enable a systematic approach and create compliance with good practices and regulatory guidelines. 3. a standard platform for interoperability of the environmental exposure knowledge. The scope of CSEO is centered on the following elements: Exposure experiment, Exposure condition, Test system, Sampling, and Disease outcome.
