REMINDER: NCBO Seminar Series - Meeting Info for Wed, Sept 2! Hello All! 

The next NCBO Seminar Series will be held TOMORROW, Sept 2, at 10am PST. The seminar will be presented by Dr. Raimond Winslow and Stephen Granite of the Institute for Computational Medicine . The title of the talk will be “Progress Report: Ontology-based annotation of biomedical time–series data.” 

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: . 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 at . 

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 ( ), 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. 

Title : Progress Report: Ontology-based annotation of biomedical time–series data 

Abstract: In a collaborating project with the NCBO, we are developing an ontology for describing the most common form of cardiovascular data – the electrocardiogram (ECG). The ontology includes the concepts needed to describe data collection protocols (number of leads, lead placement, instrumentation), the ECG waveform and its features in health and disease (e.g., QRS, T waves etc; abnormalities of the ECG such as elevated ST segment, inverted T wave, etc), data computed from the ECG (e.g., QT interval variability, QRS width, etc), algorithms used to compute these data, and interpretations (Minnesota codes). It has been deposited at the NCBO (Electrocardiography Ontology, ID 1146). We will review this ontology. 

We are developing this ontology so that clinical researchers can manage, analyze, and share semantically labeled ECG data on the CardioVascular Research Grid (CVRG). We will give a demonstration of several components of this data management and analysis workflow. These components have been developed using the Google Web Toolkit, with data visualization supported by the Google Visualization API. The demonstration will include: a) a review of the CVRG Dashboard; b) selection and upload of ECG time-series data; c) data analysis; and d) visualization and annotation of the ECG waveform. The latter is done by invoking Bioportal REST services from the web-interface to retrieve concepts and definitions from the ontology. This represents substantial progress in our effort to develop the “electronic ECG chart recorder”.
