Development of an Ontology for an Integrated Image Analysis Platform to enable Global Sharing of Microscopy Imaging Data

  title={Development of an Ontology for an Integrated Image Analysis Platform to enable Global Sharing of Microscopy Imaging Data},
  author={Satoshi Kume and Hiroshi Masuya and Yosky Kataoka and Norio Kobayashi},
Imaging data is one of the most important fundamentals in the current life sciences. We aimed to construct an ontology to describe imaging metadata as a data schema of the integrated database for optical and electron microscopy images combined with various bio-entities. To realise this, we applied Resource Description Framework (RDF) to an Open Microscopy Environment (OME) data model, which is the de facto standard to describe optical microscopy images and experimental data. We translated the…

Development of Semantic Web-Based Imaging Database for Biological Morphome
We introduce the RIKEN Microstructural Imaging Metadatabase, a semantic web-based imaging database in which image metadata are described using the Resource Description Framework (RDF) and detailed
Integrative Data Management for Reproducibility of Microscopy Experiments
This paper presents the approach for scientists to represent, search and share their experimental data and results to the scientific community for better data interoperability and reuse and shows the use of Semantic Web technologies to conserve an experiment environment and its workflow.
RIKEN MetaDatabase: A Database Platform for Health Care and Life Sciences as a Microcosm of Linked Open Data Cloud
The technical knowledge obtained through the development and operation of the RIKEN MetaDatabase is described, which allows biologists to develop, publish and integrate multiple databases easily.
OME-NGFF: scalable format strategies for interoperable bioimaging data
Next-generation file formats (NGFF) are introduced here as a solution to the challenges of sharing and integrating bioimaging data and linking these data to other “omics” datasets.
End-to-End provenance representation for the understandability and reproducibility of scientific experiments using a semantic approach
The “REPRODUCE-ME” data model and ontology is presented and an interoperable way to represent the complete path of a scientific experiment consisting of computational and non-computational steps is designed and developed.
OMERO.mde in a use case for microscopy metadata harmonization: Facilitating FAIR principles in practical application with metadata annotation tools
This work introduces a tool, MDEmic, for editing metadata of microscopic imaging data in an easy and comfortable way that provides high flexibility in terms of adjustment of metadata sets and presents a use case scenario for the tailored application of OMERO.mde.
Towards community-driven metadata standards for light microscopy: tiered specifications extending the OME model
This proposal represents a turning point towards achieving community-driven Microscopy Metadata standards that will increase data fidelity, improve repeatability and reproducibility, ease future analysis and facilitate the verifiable comparison of different datasets, experimental setups, and assays.
On Bringing Bioimaging Data into the Open (World)
The OME Consortium proposes to adopt the semantic web stack for a next generation of data formats for the storage, exchange and re-use of bioimaging data.


The cellular microscopy phenotype ontology
CMPO is currently being utilized to annotate phenotypes associated with high content screening datasets stored in several image repositories including the Image Data Repository, MitoSys project database and the Cellular Phenotype Database to facilitate data browsing and discoverability.
Biological Dynamics Markup Language (BDML): an open format for representing quantitative biological dynamics data
An open unified format, Biological Dynamics Markup Language (BDML), which provides a basic framework for representing quantitative biological dynamics data for objects ranging from molecules to cells to organisms and will improve the efficiency of development and evaluation of software tools for data visualization and analysis.
Rules-By-Example - A Novel Approach to Semantic Indexing and Querying of Images
This paper proposes a new hybrid, user-assisted approach to semantic indexing of images, Rules-By-Example (RBE), which is based on a combination of RuleML and Query- by-Example, and believes that this approach, in combination with traditional solutions, will enable faster, more flexible, cost-effective and accurate semantic indexed images.
