Title: Exploring and Navigating Ontologies through BioPortal
Abstract: This seminar will cover ongoing projects at the University of
Victoria to improve cognitive support for user navigation of ontologies. As
a follow-up to the NCBO's recent project meeting in December at Stanford
University, the presenter will demonstrate specific aspects of the
visualization tools we have developed for browsing ontologies, for creating
ontology mappings and for searching clinical trials.
Suggestions and discussion on how these tools could be further improved or
tailored to specific needs will be welcome during the presentation.
