ready Amino Acid Ontology


General Information
An ontology of amino acids and their properties. It captures how biochemists talk about amino acids; that is, a conceptualisation of amino acids. Obviously amino acids exist, but the way in which they are described in this ontology smooths out some of the chemical reality that would tend to obscure rather than reveal the important features of amino acids. That is not to say, of course, that the chemical reality that has been smoothed out is not important, for instance, in explanations of reaction mechanisms and so on. When building an ontology, however, it is important to choose those features that are important for the representation needs. It served as a demonstration of a move towards a sort of mass production of axiomatically rich ontologies.
