ready Pharmacogenomics Ontology


General Information
The PharmGKB Ontology imports genetic sequence data, collected in relational format, into the OWL, and aims to automate the process of updating the links between the ontology and data acquisition when the ontology changes. They have linked PharmGKB with data acquisition from a relational model of genetic sequence information.

Implementing Databases (1)
Pharmacogenomics Knowledge Base
PharmGKB curates primary genotype and phenotype data, annotates gene variants and gene-drug-disease relationships via literature review, and summarizes important PGx genes and drug pathways. PharmGKB collects, curates and disseminates knowledge about the impact of human genetic variation on drug responses.
