Abstract

This paper presents the COBrA-CT ontology tools, which include an ontology server database and
version manager client tool for collaborative ontology development, and an editor for bio-ontologies that are represented in the Web Ontology Language (OWL) format. The ontology server
uses OGSA-DAI Grid technology to provide access to the ontology server database. These tools
implement the agreed standard for representing Open Biomedical Ontologies (OBO) in OWL and
interoperate with other tools developed for this standard. Such tools are essential for the uptake of
OWL in the biomedical ontology community.
