From baleen to cleft palate: an ontological exploration of evolution and disease Melissa Haendel July 11 , 2014 17th Annual Bio-Ontologies SIG
Baleen whales The baleen whales are characterized by having baleen plates for filtering food from water, rather than teeth like in the toothed whales

Fossils, the ultimate silo Modern diversity only a fraction of evolutionary diversity Missing evolutionary transitions e.g. fin to limb Extant ontologies not always compatible with fossil data Different data sources and resolution between extinct and extant Shubin et al. 2006
Avoiding Silo-ization Use ontologies that are: open documented reusable interoperable built according to shared principles reuse core relations and patterns Problem: How do we re-use in the presence of variability?
Long ago in the world of anatomies CARO FBbt Drosophila MA Adult mouse EMAP embryonic mouse FMA (mostly) adult human EHDAA2 embryonic human ZFA zebrafish XAO Xenopus An anatomical reference ontology was built to help standardize species-specific ontologies
And then came Uberon, created to bridge model organism anatomies CARO FBbt Drosophila MA Adult mouse EMAP embryonic mouse FMA (mostly) adult human EHDAA2 embryonic human ZFA zebrafish XAO Xenopus UBERON
And over time… … additional multi-species ontologies evolved CARO FBbt Drosophila MA Adult mouse EMAP embryonic mouse FMA (mostly) adult human EHDAA2 embryonic human ZFA zebrafish XAO Xenopus TAO Teleost HAO Hymenoptera Arthropod VSAO Vertebrate Skeletal AAO Amphibian UBERON vHOG Vertebrate Homologous Organs Group

And there was asynchrony in the (anatomical) universe

The new Uberon Contents: – Over 11,000 classes (terms), 2500+ added in merge. – Many anatomical properties, including subclass, part-of and develops-from Scope: metazoa (animals) – Current focus is chordates – Includes teleost, amniote, and amphibian specific classes Uberon classes are generic / species neutral – ‘mammary gland’: you can use this class for any mammal! – ‘lung’: you can use this class for any vertebrate (that has lungs) http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/uberon/ext.obo http://purl.obolibrary.org/obo/uberon/ext.owl uberon.org

Connecting baleen and palates
Conclusions Uberon integrates anatomy across human, model, and non-model organisms Anatomy and phenotypes can be represented using modular ontologies We can use the data annotated to these diverse ontologies to support rare and undiagnosed disease diagnosis and explain morphological evolution Use of semantic similarity algorithms enables candidate prioritization, model identification, and mechanism exploration Baleen evolution CAN aid disease diagnostics
