Title:
The use of ontologies within the Neuroscience Information Framework, a
neuroscience-centered portal for searching and accessing diverse resources


Abstract:
Although a plethora of resources (tools, databases, materials) for
neuroscientists is now available on the web, finding these resources among
the billions of possible web pages continues to be a challenge. The lack of
discoverability is particularly acute for information contained in on-line
databases, whose dynamic content is largely opaque to web search engines
such as Google.  The Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF;
http://neuinfo.org) was launched in 2008 to address the problem of finding
neuroscience-relevant resources.  It provides simultaneous search across
multiple information sources to connect neuroscientists to available
resources. Search through the NIF portal is enhanced through the utilization
of a comprehensive ontology (NIFSTD) covering major domains in neuroscience,
including diseases, brain anatomy, cell types, subcellular anatomy, small
molecules, techniques and resource descriptors.  Through the NIFSTD
vocabularies, users can expand search using synonyms and related terms and
resource providers.  NIFSTD also provides a large neuroscience-centered
vocabulary for resource providers to utilize when building or annotating
tools and data.  In the past year, the NIF has undergone a significant
upgrade in both functionality and content.  New features make it easier to
search across the NIF information sources and to organize and view results.
The NIF vocabularies continue to be enhanced and expanded.  Tools for
resource providers to make their tools and data available through NIF have
been improved.  NIF has also made available a set of community tools whereby
neuroscientists can contribute their knowledge and expertise, including the
Neurolex Wiki, a semantically enhanced Wiki where each page represents a
NIFSTD concept.
