This article presents OntoCell, a cellular ontology that we constructed and edited under Protege2000. It regroups and unifies the main concepts and relations related to the cell's structure and behavior. OntoCell has been validated by experts in biology (by the UMRS INSERM 514). Moreover, it will be validated in the context of the development of a multi-agent system simulating the behavior of a cellular population.
