Get Anatomy Ontologies for Bioinformatics: Principles and PDF

By Jonathan Bard (auth.), Albert Burger BSc, MSc, PhD, Duncan Davidson BSc, PhD, Richard Baldock BSc, PhD (eds.)

Bioinformatics as a self-discipline has come of age, and there are actually various databases and instruments which are regularly occurring through researchers within the biomedical box. besides the fact that, profitable improvement of destiny bioinformatics purposes relies on an safely formalised illustration of area knowledge.

This publication presents a well timed and first-of-its-kind choice of contributed chapters on anatomy ontologies. it's interdisciplinary in its procedure, bringing jointly correct services from computing and biomedical reports, and protecting either theoretical and utilized points, with an emphasis on more recent paintings appropriate to the rising Semantic Web.

Topics and Features:

• offers a finished dialogue of the principles of anatomical ontologies and the cutting-edge in current computational instruments and applications

• Considers a couple of basic modelling principles

• contains chapters approximately learn on algorithms to systematically align anatomy ontologies and to mine info within the literature, utilizing anatomy terms

• Explains fresh efforts to improve a standard anatomy reference ontology

• Discusses anatomy within the context of spatio-temporal biomedical atlases

• Describes structures and instruments for linking anatomy ontologies with one another and with different online assets, resembling the biomedical literature

• Highlights the demanding situations of facing anatomy-based details at the Semantic Web

Although basically written for readers who could be fascinated about constructing the subsequent new release of IT functions within the components of lifestyles sciences, biomedical sciences and healthiness care, this precise quantity could be of curiosity to somebody who will extra boost anatomy ontologies, who will use them, and who can be keen on the particular improvement of correct (semantic) internet applications.
