OHPI: Ontology of Host-Pathogen Interactions
OHPI is a community-driven ontology of host-pathogen interactions (OHPI) and represents the virulence factors (VFs) and how the mutants of VFs in the Victors database become less virulence inside a host organism or host cells. It is developed to represent manually curated HPI knowledge available in the PHIDIAS resource .
Example: The OHPI object property ‘gene mutant attenuated in host cell’ represents a relation between a gene and a host cell where the microbial mutant lacking the gene is attenuated in the host cell compared to the wild type microbe. Such an object property can be used to represent a virulence factor and its interaction in a host cell, e.g., an oxidative stress response gene ahpC of M. tuberculosis strain H37Rv and mouse macrophage cell line J774 cell line where the ahpC mutant of strain Mycobactrium tuberculosis H37Rv is attenuated in J774 cells.
