Hi All,

We are proud to announce that the NCBO Seminar Series Talks will resume this
Wednesday, Sept. 10. Talks will be held the 2nd and 4th Wednesday of each
month at 10AM PDT.

The title and abstract for next week¹s talk are below. Information on how to
join the meeting and teleconference will be sent out on Monday.

We hope to see you there.

Presenter: Benjamin Dai
Title:  NCBO Current and Emerging Technologies

Abstract:  With the explosion of information in the biomedical domain, it
has become much harder for scientists to access knowledge and experimental
data with rapidity and accuracy. The NCBO is currently developing
technologies that will advance biology and medicine by enhancing the
structured organization of knowledge and improving access to large
repositories of biomedical knowledge and data.  Benjamin will be presenting:
* BioPortal 2.0 ­ a Web application for browsing ontologies, support of
mappings between ontologies, for community-based peer review.
* Open Biomedical Resources ­ a facility that allows scientists to use
ontologies to access publicly available biomedical data and knowledge
* Open Biomedical  Annotator ­ a tool that uses ontologies to annotate
scientific data computationally
* NCBO Fabric and REST Services ­ an architecture that allows users to embed
NCBO services in their tools
* Emerging User Interface Tools ­ a variety of creative visualization
techniques that provide cognitive support for browsing ontologies
* The NCBO PURL Server ­ a service that provides Unique Resource Identifiers
for biomedical concepts.
The NCBO tools work together to facilitate accession and management of
ontologies in the BioPortal repository and the use of those ontologies to
ease the identification and retrieval of relevant data and knowledge
