Schematic representation of ONTO-PERL, ONTO-ToolKit and Galaxy. The ONTO-ToolKit suite of tools provides a support within the Galaxy framework to analyse and manipulate OBO-formatted ontologies. ONTO-ToolKit relies on the functionality enabled by ONTO-PERL to handle bio-ontologies and to enable operations (such as format conversions from OBO to OWL) that could in turn produce results that might be further analysed and exploited through other tools (such as workflows or statistical analyses) provided in the Galaxy environment.
