In this poster we present novel development and extension of the Drug-drug Interaction and Drug-drug Interaction Evidence Ontology (DIDEO). We demonstrate how reasoning over this extension of DIDEO can a) automatically create a multi-level hierarchy of evidence types from descriptions of the underlying scientific observations and b) automatically subsume individual evidence items under the correct evidence type. Thus DIDEO will enable evidence items added manually by curators to be automatically categorized into a drug-drug interaction framework with precision and minimal effort from curators. As with all previous DIDEO development this extension is consistent with OBO Foundry principles.
