Biological ontologies define the basic terms and relations in biological domains and are being used among others, as community reference, as the basis for interoperability between systems, and for search, integration and exchange of biological data. In this chapter we present examples of biological ontologies and ontology-based knowledge, show how biological ontologies are used and discuss some important issues in ontology engineering.
