This lack of sistematization poses problems to physicians, biologists, researchers and the technical staff at blood banks in their ordinary activities involving the manipulation of blood, as well as its derivative products. The Blood Ontology is a set of co-related ontologies being created to gather and represent data about blood according to well-founded ontological principles.
