Please join us WEDS, 02 Mar (6p, 1140 Winslow) as TWC PhD student Robin Liu leads us in a discussion of his work in using ontologies as a basis for laboratory data integration, including the application of LIMS and Hadatac

SUMMARY: Data integration provides the ability to manipulate data transparently across multiple data sources. It is relevant to a number of applications including laboratory hub information integration, medical information management, and enterprise applications. Ontologies enable the unambiguous identification of entities in heterogeneous information systems and assertion of applicable named relationships that connect these entities together. In this talk we will discuss the use of ontologies for data integration and how we use open source LIMS and Hadatac to support lab data management and metadata collection.

BIO: Yue (Robin) Liu is now a 3rd year PhD student working with Prof. Deborah McGuinness. He is interested in BioMedical knowledge discovery with various techniques including semantic web, machine learning and natural language processing. This year Yue is working on lab hubs data integration for the CHEAR(Child Health Exposure Analysis Repository) project.

About TWed:
  • "TWed" is the Tetherless World Educational Series
  • "TWed Talks" are informal overview talks and tutorials on topics of interest to the Tetherless World community. TWed gives members of the lab the chance to share tools and expertise. TWed talks are not lectures; they are expected to be highly interactive and fun. TWed leaders are encouraged to include live "hack" activities in their session plans.
