The Taverna workflow tool suite (http://www.taverna.org.uk) is designed to combine distributed Web Services and/or local tools into complex analysis pipelines. These pipelines can be executed on local desktop machines or through larger infrastructure (such as supercomputers, Grids or cloud environments), using the Taverna Server. In bioinformatics, Taverna(More)
Scientific data represents a significant portion of the linked open data cloud and scientists stand to benefit from the data fusion capability this will afford. Publishing linked data into the cloud, however, doesn't ensure the required reusability. Publishing has requirements of provenance, quality, credit, attri-bution and methods to provide the(More)
Over a five-year period 245 patients with uveitis were investigated at the Uveitis Clinic, Sydney Eye Hospital, for possible aetiological and relevant disease associations. Uveitis was anterior in 75% of patients, posterior in 21% and generalized in 4%. Anterior uveitis (AU) was idiopathic in 52% of cases. In patients tested for the HLA-B27 antigen, 47%(More)
We present a case of rapid progressive unilateral visual loss in a 69-year-old woman who presented with facial pain, ipsilateral proptosis and restriction of eye movements, and nasal symptoms suggestive of sinusitis. A diagnosis of allergic aspergillus sinusitis was made on the basis of local histopathology and systemic features. Over a three-week period(More)
The Taverna workflow management system is an open source project with a history of widespread adoption within multiple experimental science communities, and a long-term ambition of effectively supporting the evolving need of those communities for complex, data-intensive, service-based experimental pipelines. This paper describes how the recently overhauled(More)
Knowledge-intensive applications pose new challenges to metadata management, including distribution, access control, uniformity of access, and evolution in time. This paper identifies general requirements for metadata management and describes a simple model and service that focuses on RDF metadata to address these requirements.
Two cases are presented in which multiple episodic retrobulbar botulinum toxin injections have diminished incapacitating acquired oscillopsia and nystagmus and improved visual acuity. One transient ptosis occurred in six procedures. Improvement duration averaged approximately three months. This is a simple, safe and effective therapy where alternative(More)
We report a meta-analysis of randomised, controlled, clinical trials of systemic anti-fibrinolytics in traumatic hyphaema. Outcome measures were rate of secondary haemorrhage and final visual acuity. An estimate of the overall odds ratio for each outcome measure was calculated both by combining the logarithms of the odds ratios, and by the Mantel-Haenszel(More)
