Traditional Chinese Drug Ontology

Other names: TCDO

More than 400 popular TCD decoction pieces (TCD-DP) were selected from authoritative textbooks, standards and terminologies, as well as their crudes, Chinese medicinal material (CMM). The TCD-DP entities are categorized in 23 upper level terms by their clinical effects. Their properties like nature, flavor, toxicity and meridian entries are also defined formally by logical relations. CMM’s species is mapped to the NCBITaxon taxonomy ontology, which establishes a link between traditional medicine and modern biomedical science. TCDO contains over 1,500 terms, including terms drawn from existing ontologies and more than 1,000 TCD-specific terms, labeled in both Chinese and English.
