Welcome to the Pistoia Alliance Ontologies Mapping project public Wiki Space

This area contains public project resources for ontology consumers and providers to support practical application and mapping.

The Ontologies Mapping project has been was set up to create better mapping tools and services, and to establish best practices for ontology management in the Life Sciences. For our purpose, ontologies can include hierarchical relationships, taxonomies, classifications and/or vocabularies which are becoming increasingly important for support of research and development.

A general description of the Ontologies Mapping project can be found on the Pistoia Alliance web site :- as Ontologies Mapping, which is now part of the FAIR Implementation project.


  • Ontologies Mapping project on the Pistoia Alliance web site
  • Project status: Phase 4 is underway to extend the prototype Ontologies Mapping Service for public ontologies in the Biological and Chemical Data Analytics domain during 2019Status: Ontologies Mapping is now part of the FAIR Implementation project.
  • Publication of our short review entitled "Ontology mapping for semantically enabled applications" in Drug Discovery Today 2019
  • Phase 4: mapped 54 ontologies in the laboratory analytics domain. Thirteen of these mappings wer compared with a silver standard.
  • Phase 3: implemented a prototype Ontologies Mapping Service for 10 mappings between 5 public ontologies in the Phenotype and Disease domains (below).
  • Publication of our paper entitled “Matching disease and phenotype ontologies in the ontology alignment initiative” in J Biomedical Semantics 2016
