Ontological research in Onto-Med is aimed at the development, representation and application of top-level ontologies as well as core and domain ontologies in different areas of medicine and life sciences, but also in other domains. Currently, these investigations include the top-level ontology GFO and the biological core ontology GFO-Bio.

In this area, we provide downloads and supplementary information on available formalizations and implementations.
