The need for a system to effectively manage and retrieve biomarker information has become apparent to medical and biomedical scientists, as evidenced by the recent development of a number of biomarker information systems. To improve the functionality of such systems, we have developed a new biomarker information system will be discussed in this paper, a system that we refer to as BiomRKRS: A Biomarker Retrieval and Knowledge Reasoning System. In this paper, we introduce the general structure and characteristics of BiomRKRS. We will demonstrate how BiomRKRS employs existing ontologies in the biomedical domain to create a core integrated ontology for biomarkers as a standard vocabulary set for..
