Abstract

Motivation: Bioinformatics relies heavily on web resources for information gathering. Ontologies are being developed to fill the background knowledge needed to drive Semantic Web applications. This paper discusses how ontologies are not always suited for document navigation on the web. Converting ontologies into a model with looser semantics allows cheap and rapid generation of useful knowledge systems. The message is that ontologies are not the only knowledge artefact needed; vocabularies and other classification schemes with weaker semantics have their role and are the best solution in certain circumstances.
