Abstract

The eagle-i project has been developing a semantic search portal for biomedical research resources. A unique feature of eagle-i is that the data collection and search tools are completely driven by ontologies. This has been a source of challenges and opportunities regarding use of biomedical ontologies in real-world applications. In this paper, we address our approach and lessons learned for balancing practical project requirements for design and implementation of an ontology driven application, with a desire to conform to best practices for biomedical ontology development.
