An Ontology of Gene

Genes, a concept established in the era of classical genetics, are now essential for biomedical science for elucidating the molecular basis of the coding of genetic information necessary to realize the body of an organism and its biological functions. However, an ontology representing multiple aspects of a gene as a single information-model is still not available. In this study, we dissected the biological and ontological definitions of bearers of genetic information, including genes and alleles. Here, we propose a basic way of modeling an ontology that represents the common definitions in classical and molecular genetics.
