This ontology is in early development. Expect it to change.

The Ontology for General Medical Science (OGMS) is based on the papers Toward an Ontological Treatment of Disease and Diagnosis and On Carcinomas and Other Pathological Entities. The ontology attempts to address some of the issues raised at the Workshop on Ontology of Diseases (Dallas, TX). OGMS was formerly called the clinical phenotype ontology. Terms from OGMS hang from the Basic Formal Ontology. The latest version of OGMS is always available at http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/ogms.owl This is version 2018-11-27 aka 'v2018' The OGMS developer site is https://github.com/OGMS/ogms The discussion group is http://groups.google.com/group/ogms-discuss If you are interested in participating in the development of OGMS, please send email to baeverma@jcvi.org. Be sure to include a google-account username with your request (this will be the username associated with a gmail address).
