by Dr. Amit Sheth of the Kno.e.sis Center. To see the full abstract for this
presentation, please visit:

Please email me with any questions at skanel at As always,
information about the series, including the schedule and videos of previous

We hope to see you there.

Semantics and Services Enabled Problem Solving Environment for Trypanosoma
(Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University; University of Georgia (CTEGD,
LSDIS); NCBO, Stanford University)

T.cruzi is a protozoan parasite and a relative of other human pathogens that
cause African sleeping sickness and leishmaniasis. The use of industrial
scale experimental methods has led to an enormous increase in the size of
available datasets. These dynamic datasets, addressing different but
logically related aspects, are distributed over multiple databases that
undergo frequent additions and curation. In the Semantic and
Services-enabled Problem Solving Environment for T.cruzi project we are
creating a comprehensive infrastructure for management, querying, analysis
and visualization of scientific data to enable the scientist to more quickly
lead to  answer complex queries such as ³What are the diagnostic techniques
to identify antigens in T.cruzi?², using the following approaches:
1.      Semantic provenance-enabled cyberinfrastructure for T.cruzi
experimental data to enable the verification of scientific results and
validation of experimental process.

2.      Semantic text processing and analysis approaches for extraction of
knowledge from biomedical literature

3.      A Semantic services-based smart mashups (Web 2.0) environment for

4.      Query interface for complex query formulation and execution
underpinned by ontology and services

In this talk, Amit Sheth <>  (PI) will discuss
the details associated with each of the four approaches, the preliminary
work and the objectives for the first year of this project. Project web page
