[protege-discussion] NCBO Webinar: Translating unstructured, crowdsourced content into structured data - Feb. 20 at 10am PST

Tue Feb 19 11:13:22 PST 2013

The next NCBO Webinar will be presented by Andrew Su from The Scripps
Research Institute on "Translating unstructured, crowdsourced content into
structured data" at 10:00am PST, Wednesday, Feb. 20.  Below is information
on how to join the online meeting via WebEx and accompanying
teleconference. For the full schedule of the NCBO Webinar presentations

The use of crowdsourcing in biology is gaining popularity as a mechanism to
tackle challenges of massive scale.  However, to maximize participation and
lower the barriers to entry, contributions to crowdsourcing efforts are
typically not well-structured, which makes computing on these data
challenging and difficult.  The presentation will discuss strategies for
translating this unstructured content into structured data.  Three
vignettes (in varying degrees of completion) will be described, one each
from our Gene Wiki [1], BioGPS [2], and serious gaming [3] initiatives.


Andrew Su is an Associate Professor at The Scripps Research Institute.  His
group develops bioinformatics tools for biomedical research, focusing on
harnessing the collective efforts of the biology community.  The lab also
applies these and other tools to a variety of projects in integrative
genomics.  Andrew previously led bioinformatics efforts at GNF from 2002 to
2011.  Prior to that, he received his Ph.D. from the Scripps Research
Institute and did his undergraduate studies at Northwestern University.
