>
> Abstract
>
> In the past decade, there has been an explosion in the use of  
> formal ontologies to enumerate and categorize the entities in  
> scientific disciplines. This trend is particularly palpable in  
> biology, where an avalanche of available data requires new  
> technologies for search, integration, and analysis. Work in  
> biomedical ontology has largely been stimulated from the ground up,  
> where the pressing needs of small groups of scientists have spawned  
> a large cottage industry of pragmatic ontology developers. The  
> National Center for Biomedical Ontology, one of the seven national  
> centers for biomedical computing recently created under the NIH  
> Roadmap, has been created to help move this cottage industry into  
> the industrial age. In this talk, I will discuss the rise of  
> ontologies in biology in the context of e-science, the challenges  
> of organizing the cottage industry into a coherent work force, and  
> some of the opportunities afforded by the representation and  
> dissemination of scientific knowledge in machine-processable form.
