ABSTRACT:
As part of our project with the NCBO we have been curating expression
experiments housed in NCBI's GEO data base and annotating a variety of
rat-related records using the NCBO Annotator and more recently, mining data
from the NCBO Resource Index. The annotation pipelines and curation tools
that we have built have demonstrated some strengths and shortfalls of
automated ontology annotation. Similarly our manual curation of these
records highlights areas where human involvement could be improved to better
address the fact that we are living in the Google era where findability is
King.

SPEAKER BIO:
Simon Twigger currently splits his time between being an Assistant Professor
in the Human and Molecular Genetics Center at the Medical College of
Wisconsin in Milwaukee and exploring the iPhone and iPad as mobile platforms
for education and interaction. At MCW he has been an investigator on the Rat
Genome Database project for the past 10 years, he worked with the Gene
Ontology project and has been active in the BioCuration community as
co-organizer of the past three International BioCuration meetings. He is the
former Director of Bioinformatics for the MCW Proteomics Center and was
previously the Biomedical Informatics Key Function Director for the MCW
Clinical & Translational Science Institute. He is a Semantic web enthusiast
and is eagerly awaiting the rapture of Web 3.0 when all the data will be
taken up into the Linked Data cloud and its true potential realized.
