NCBO Seminar Series - Meeting Info for Wed, July 15! Hello All! 

The next NCBO Seminar Series will be held Wednesday, July 15, at 10am PST . The seminar will be presented by Clement Jonquet , of the NCBO. The title of the talk will be Prototyping a Biomedical Ontology Recommender Service. 

Below is Information on how to join this week’s online meeting and accompanying teleconference. Please note there will not be a VOIP option, and attendees must call into the teleconference. 

For more information about the series, please visit the Seminar Series home page: http://www.bioontology.org/seminar_series.html . Information on how to join this week’s webinar is given below. To receive information on or to join any future meetings, please contact me at skanel@stanford.edu . 

This series aims to showcase new projects, technologies and ideas in biomedical ontology by featuring the work of a different collaborator each session. It is a webinar held online, and as such is open to anyone interested, regardless of location or affiliation. The sponsoring organization, the National Center for Biomedical Ontology ( http://www.bioontology.org ), is a consortium of leading biologists, clinicians, informaticians, and ontologists who develop innovative technology and methods allowing scientists to create, disseminate, and manage biomedical information and knowledge in machine-processable form. 

We hope to see you there. 

Prototyping a Biomedical Ontology Recommender Service 
(paper presented at Bio-Ontologies: Knowledge in Biology, SIG, ISMBECCB 2009 ) 

As the use of ontologies for annotation of biomedical datasets rises, a common question researchers face is that of identifying which ontologies are relevant to annotate their datasets. The number and variety of biomedical ontologies is now quite large and it is cumbersome for a scientist to figure out which ontology to (re)use in their annotation tasks. In this paper we describe an early version of an ontology recommender service, which informs the user of the most appropriate ontologies relevant for their given dataset. We provide results to illustrate that situation. The recommender service uses a semantic annotation based approach and scores the ontologies according to those annotations. The prototype service can recommend ontologies from UMLS and the NCBO BioPortal and is accessible at http://bioontology.org/tools.html .
