The mapping between the PROTON Ontology and the UMBEL Reference Concepts Structure was generated by hand.

For each PROTON class, we found an equivalent concept, or a parent concept, in the UMBEL Reference Concepts Structure. Once we found a potential candidate, we had to make sure that the underlying structure of the class, within the PROTON architecture, was consistent with the UMBEL ontology structure.

If a match was found, we generated a rdf:subClassof relationship between the PROTON class and the UMBEL reference concept. At the end of the mapping, all PROTON classes were made rdfs:subClassOf of one UMBEL reference concept.

Once the mapping was finished, we made sure that the linkage was consistent and satisfiable by using the noted ontology testing methods.
