BACKGROUND Laboratory protocols in life sciences tend to be written in natural language, with negative consequences on repeatability, distribution and automation of scientific experiments. Formalization of knowledge is becoming popular in science. In the case of laboratory protocols two levels of formalization are needed: one for the entities and(More)
BACKGROUND The Gene Ontology Project provides structured controlled vocabularies for molecular biology that can be used for the functional annotation of genes and gene products. In a collaboration between the Gene Ontology (GO) Consortium and the muscle biology community, we have made large-scale additions to the GO biological process and cellular component(More)
In light of ongoing climate changes in wine-growing regions, the selection of drought-tolerant rootstocks is becoming a crucial factor for developing a sustainable viticulture. In this study, M4, a new rootstock genotype that shows tolerance to drought, was compared from a genomic and transcriptomic point of view with the less drought-tolerant genotype(More)
—Software-based Laboratory Information Management Systems can handle samples, plates, instruments, users, potentially up to the automation of whole workflows. One frustrating element of this predicament is that Life Sciences laboratory protocols are normally expressed in natural languages and thus are scarcely amenable to real automation. We want to defeat(More)
