The histological ontology is developed following an existing methodology using Conceptual Models (CMs) and validated using OOPS!, expert evaluation with CMs, and how accurately the ontology can answer the Competency Questions (CQ).
We left the histological ontology publicly available at http://bioportal.bioontology.org/ontologies/HO, the documentation at https://w3id.org/def/System and the OWL files at https: //github.com/claxima/HistologicalOntology

You can look at either file using in Protege or another OWL ontology editor. It should import the ncbitaxon_import.owl and other imports/ files too. After cloning this repository, use the Protege ontology editor to load the main file, and browse the Langual hierarchy under the "Classes" tab.
The data directory contains the created datasets:
- OnToology folder --- a representation of our ontology at https://w3id.org/def/System
- .OWL files --- Tissue, Organ and System
- CompetencyQuestions.pdf --- the document which contain all competency questions
- SPARQL_Queries.pdf --- the document with the SPARQL queries to evaluate the ontology
Initially, the ontology was created in Spanish and later on a version in English was included.
