An ontological representation of sex and gender information

Abstract : Sex and gender are important health determinants. It is therefore valuable to represent them in medical records. However, these entities are complex to define. In this paper we review some existing representations of sex and gender, with a special focus on the informational entities representing them. We detail our proposal for formalizing sex and gender informational entities according to the OBO Foundry methodology. In particular, we introduce classes enabling to represent information that may be either well-defined or ambiguous relatively to whether they represent sex or gender.
