Genia Ontology

The GENIA ontology is intended to be a formal model of cell signaling reactions in human. It is to be used as a basis of thesauri and semantic dictionaries for natural language processing applications, e.g.,

Information retrieval (IR) & filtering (IF)
Information extraction (IE)
Document and term classification & categorization
Summarization, etc.

Another use of the GENIA ontology is to provide the basis for integrated view of multiple databases including CSNDB developed at National Institiute of Health Science.
