ONTO-PERL - PERL modules for OBO-formatted ontologies


  ONTO-PERL a collection of PERL modules for dealing with OBO-formatted 
  ontologies (like the Gene Ontology). This code distribution gathers 
  object-oriented modules (to handle ontology elements such as a Term, 
  a Relationship, a Synonym, and so forth), scripts (for typical tasks 
  such as format conversions: obo2owl, owl2obo; besides, there are also
  many examples that can be easily adapted for specific applications), and 
  a comprehensive set of test files for ensuring its implementation quality.
