Virtual Fly Brain Images (VFB)

The VFB query system relies on representation of data/knowledge in OWL. Central to this a representation of Drosophila neuro-anatomy in the Drosophila anatomy ontology. The anatomical structures depicted in images displayed on VFB are represented as a KnowledgeBase of OWL individuals, which are classified (typed) using OWL class expressions referencing the anatomy ontology. When this KnowledgeBase of individuals is combined with the ontology, a reasoner can be used to classify and query for anatomical structures depicted in the images on VFB.
