Dear OBO community,

 

I would like to request the prefix ‘MD’ for the Mental Disease ontology which classifies mental diseases and pathological mental processes. The ontology is available at https://mental-functioning-ontology.googlecode.com/svn/trunk/ontology/MD.owl. It contains a classification of the most common mental diseases, e.g. schizophrenia, and pathological processes, e.g. an episode of psychosis, annotated with DSM-IV and ICD-10 codes where applicable. The ontology has developed as an extension out of the Mental Functioning ontology project, and aims to support annotation of data relating to psychological research, with primary applications to data arising in metabolomics and psychiatric genetics.

 

Kind regards,

Janna
