Abstract:

Ontology is a knowledge representation technique, devised for the web based systems to provide the capability to deal with the semantics of the concepts in the specific knowledge domain. Alternatively, taxonomy describes the real world concepts in a well-defined hierarchy and exists in standard form for various domains in science. The present study dealt with the taxonomy of microorganisms. The Three Domain System taxonomy is most widely adopted taxonomy in this domain. It covers Bacteria, Archaea and Eukarya domains. In this research work a web based application has been developed using N-tier architecture which extended the previously developed Microbial Ontology covering Archaea domain up to the species level. Developed application easily identified new microorganisms by matching their characteristics. Domain experts can insert, delete and edit any new information about the microbial taxonomy. The web interface also provided search facility for finding information about the concepts and 16S rRNA sequences of various Archaea species. This software also facilitated name based search for microorganism’s taxonomic terms. A sequence alignment tool is also developed in the system for aligning the query sequence with the existing sequence in the ontology. The use of ontologies to represent the taxonomic information and the ability of this software to provide this knowledge to other applications increases the utility of this work to a greater extent.
