DermKnowledgeBASE (DKB)

DermKnowledgeBASE randomly reads pubmed abstracts and identifies relationships between ONTODerm concepts as rules that are stored in an RDF compliant database. However the process is prone to errors. Curators are dermatology domain experts who can correct the errors by deleting incorrect rules. Curators may also add important rules that are missed.
