Abstract

The Human Phenotype Ontology (HP) and Mammalian Phenotype (MP) Ontology represent information about abnormal phenotypes encountered in human diseases and mammalian organisms, respectively. It is a goal to co-develop these ontologies and align the terminology and logical axioms to increase interoperability of the two ontologies. Towards this end, we have worked to develop consistent design patterns for commonly used types of classes, such as morphological phenotypes or abnormal anatomical structures. We are currently implementing ‘dead simple ontology design patterns’ (DOSDP), which are design patterns that can be specified in a YAML text file and can be used to generate new terms, documentation, retrofit old terms, and allows for reuse of patterns. This paper describes the development and implementation of the DOSDP in the HP and MP.
