 Ontologies for molecular biology and bioinformatics
First, one should be aware of the distinction between ontology, the study of being as a branch of philosophy and individual (domain) ontologies, which are the result of the analysis of a particular domain of interest (possibly as broad as the universe) and the instantiation of a concrete ontological model of that domain.
Since a domain ontology addresses primarily basic, fundamental underlying relations of an application domain there is less need to modify an ontology as compared to actual knowledge bases.
An ontology is not a model of an application domain but a compendium of all building blocks with their valid modes of combination required to express a theory.

 Domain - definition from Biology-Online.org
(Science: molecular biology) Used to describe a part of a molecule or structure that shares common physico chemical features, for example hydrophobic, polar, globular, helical domains or properties for example dna binding domain, atp binding domain.
there are 3 distinctive domains present in the world, that are widely accepted by scientist: Domain bacteria and domain archaea are both prokaryotic(meaning they have no nucleus), while domain eukarya is eukaryotic.
Domain eukarya includes all multicellular organisms, including protists, animals, fungi, and plants.

  Domain (biology) - Medicow   (Site not responding. Last check: )
Biology is the natural science that studies the thermal state of no-equilibrium known as Proton Motive Force, which derives from a specific position and movement of  the energy (quantum state), and the quasi-stable thermodynamic systems that experience it.
Biology, the study of life, is the fastest growing of the scientific disciplines, and is likely to be a dominant issue in the coming century.
With the expansion of the cognitive domain during evolution, the types of behavior have changed as well as how their relevance is implemented; different kinds of behavior are relevant to the maintenance of the basic circularity of the living organization through different domains of interactions, and hence, different fields of causal relations.

 Genome Biology | Full text | Predicting domain-domain interactions using a parsimony approach
For example, the Association method [15] scores each domain pair by the ratio of the number of occurrences of a given pair in interacting proteins to the number of independent occurrences of those domains.
More precisely, for a given domain pair, the pw-score is the minimum of a p value (which measures the probability of obtaining the same or higher score in a random network of interactions for the same protein set) and a probability based on witness support and the network reliability rate (see Materials and methods).
Domain p53, also known as tumor protein 53 (TP53), is a transcription factor that regulates the cell cycle, and hence functions as a tumor suppressor.

 Genome Biology | Full text | THoR: a tool for domain discovery and curation of multiple alignments
When annotating sequences from an evolutionary perspective, it is important to characterize sequences in terms of domains, which we define as being compact and spatially distinct protein structures [1].
As domains are often present in different molecular contexts and in different combinations, it is necessary to employ sophisticated resources such as Pfam [2] and SMART [3] for their prediction.
Among the domains found in narrowly diverse taxa were domains that were not expected to be found within the pufferfish genome; these served as negative controls.

 Maturana (1970): Biology of Cognition
Moreover, since the domain of interactions of the organism is defined by its structure, and since this structure implies a prediction of a niche, the relations with which the nervous system interacts are defined by this prediction and arise in the domain of interactions of the organism.
However, because the outcome of the interaction is determined in the cognitive domain of the orientee regardless of the significance of the message in the cognitive domain of the orienter, the denotative function of the message lies only in the cognitive domain of the observer and not in the operative effectiveness of the communicative interaction.
Accordingly, once a cultural domain is established, the subsequent evolution of the nervous system is necessarily subordinated to it in the measure that it determines the functional validity of the new kinds of concomitances of activity that may arise in the nervous system through genetic variability.

In molecular biology, a gene and its products are at the center of the study, as a set of these molecular entities dictate, and their products carry out, different functions at the cellular level and the combined effects can be seen at the organism level.
In both biology and newswire corpora, confer is used with semantic "to give (as a property or characteristic) to someone or something" and lead to is used in the sense of "to tend toward or have a result".
In addition to the significance of verb senses used in the molecular biology domain, syntactic constructions also differ markedly; such as the use of passives allowing the semantic subject to be omitted where they are part of the common-sense understanding in the domain.

A biology teacher must also be able to teach his students the guiding practices of all scientists: objectivity, skepticism, problem-solving, and experimentation.
An expertise in biology, however, must be coupled with the ability to understand the concepts of secondary teaching.

 ALA | Teachers Domain
This is exactly what happened in Bedford, Massachusetts, and Sterling, Virginia, when biology teachers and their students piloted Teachers’ Domain, an ambitious digital library being developed for the National Science Digital Library by WGBH, the Boston public television station, with major funding from the National Science Foundation (NSF).
In January 2003 teachers and their students nationwide were able to connect to an expanded version of Teachers’ Domain when it launched as part of NSF’s National Science Digital Library.
At launch date, Teachers’ Domain contained these additional life science units: the cell (for high school students); structure and function (for middle schoolers); behavior and regulation (also for middle school students); and general life science (for elementary students).

Provincialism: biology is a province of physical science; hence, more than compatibility between biological theories and those of physics is needed.
Autonomism: the aims of biology and methods of achieving them are fundamentally different from those of the physical sciences; these differences trace their roots to the domain of biology -- living organisms -- and the non-deterministic processes that characterize the domain.
The provincialist (and the philosophers who share this view) takes molecular biology to be the locus at which biology and the physical sciences come together: shared subject matter and techniques, and molecular biology viewed as enabling intra-theoretical reduction with the biological sciences.

Typically, students enter high school and college classrooms with "nominal literacy." A person with nominal literacy recognizes some terms and concepts as belonging to the domain of biology, but has only a rudimentary and frequently inaccurate understanding of their meaning or significance.
With basic understandings in place, students are ready to use their understanding of biology in more independent ways.
Further along the continuum of biological literacy, students move into "multidimensional literacy" in which they begin to understand the place of biology in human experience and can tackle examining and debating issues at the intersections between biology and society.
