Integration of clinical-pathological information of Biobanks with genomics-epidemiological data/inferences in a structured and consistent manner, mitigating inherent heterogeneities of sites/sources of data/sample collection, processing, and information storage hurdles, is primary to achieving an automated surveillance system. Genomics Integrated Biobanking Ontology (GIBO) presents a solution for preserving the contextual meaning of heterogeneous data, while interlinking different genomics and epidemiological concepts in machine comprehensible format with the biobank framework. GIBO an OWL ontology introduces 84 new classes to integrate genomics data relevant to public health.
