The GO is heavily reliant on the Web Ontology Language (OWL) for the construction and ongoing maintenance of the ontology. By using many tools developed by the OWL community, such as automated reasoning engines like Elk, we are able to automate tasks such as making sure edges in the graph are complete, and avoiding erroneous edges.
