NCBO Annotator : Semantic Annotation of Biomedical Data

  title={NCBO Annotator : Semantic Annotation of Biomedical Data},
  author={Clement Jonquet and Nigam Haresh Shah and Cherie Youn and Mark A. Musen and Chris Callendar and Margaret-Anne D. Storey},
The National Center for Biomedical Ontology Annotator is an ontology-based web service for annotation of textual biomedical data with biomedical ontology concepts. The biomedical community can use the Annotator service to tag datasets automatically with concepts from more than 200 ontologies coming from the two most important set of biomedical ontology & terminology repositories: the UMLS Metathesaurus and NCBO BioPortal. Through annotation (or tagging) of datasets with ontology concepts…

NCBO Ontology Recommender 2.0: an enhanced approach for biomedical ontology recommendation

A new version of the NCBO Ontology Recommender, which suggests relevant ontologies for annotating biomedical text data, combines the strengths of its predecessor with a range of adjustments and new features that improve its reliability and usefulness.

Comparison of Natural Language Processing Tools for Automatic Gene Ontology Annotation of Scientific Literature

A comparison of four state of the art NLP tools at the task of recognizing Gene Ontology concepts from biomedical literature using the Colorado Richly Annotated Full-Text (CRAFT) corpus as a gold standard reference is conducted.

A Novel Atomic Annotator for Quality Assurance of Biomedical Ontologies

An annotator that atomically annotates the tokens of a clinical concept by crafting atomic dictionaries from the sub-hierarchies of Systematized Nomenclature of Medicine (SNOMED) to ensure improved QA of biomedical ontologies.

OntoContext, a new python package for gene contextualization based on the annotation of biomedical texts

OntoContext, a contextualization system crossing the use of biomedical ontologies to annotate texts containing terms related to cell populations, anatomical locations and diseases and to extract gene, RNA or protein names in these contexts is presented.

Optimizing Semantic Enrichment of Biomedical Content through Knowledge Sharing

A socio-technical semantic annotation optimization approach that enhance the semantic search of biomedical contents and introduces a knowledge sharing scheme through which authors/users could request for recommendations from other users to optimize the semantic enrichment process.

Improved characterisation of clinical text through ontology-based vocabulary expansion

An algorithm is developed and presented that expands the set of labels associated with an ontology class using a combination of strict lexical matching and cross-ontology reasoner-enabled equivalency queries, which can lead to a vast increase in the scale of vocabulary available for text mining applications.

Towards the French biomedical ontology enrichment

This work proposes a methodology that extracts new terms in MeSH ontology, and seeks to induce semantic concepts of new candidate terms, and to find semantic links, i.e. relevant locations of new Candidate terms, in an existing biomedical ontology.

BIOTEX: A system for Biomedical Terminology Extraction, Ranking, and Validation

BIOTEX is presented, a Web application that implements state-of-the-art measures for automatic extraction of biomedical terms from free text in English and French.

Aligning Biomedical Metadata with Ontologies Using Clustering and Embeddings

A new method based on clustering and embeddings to align metadata field names with ontology terms is presented and it is revealed that the method yields more and substantially better alignments between metadata and ontology Terms.

Connections across Scientific Publications based on Semantic Annotations

This manuscript produces and analyzes the semantic annotations in scientific articles to investigate on the interconnectivity across the articles and concludes that the different methods would contribute to different types of relatedness between articles that could be later used in recommendation systems based on semantic links across a network of scientific publications.



The Open Biomedical Annotator

The Open Biomedical Annotator (OBA) is presented, an ontology-based Web service that annotates public datasets with biomedical ontology concepts based on their textual metadata ( www.bioontology.org).

BioPortal: A Web Repository for Biomedical Ontologies and Data Resources

The National Center for Biomedical Ontology is developing BioPortal, a Web-based system that serves as a repository for biomedical ontologies that defines relationships among those ontologies and between the ontology and online data resources such as PubMed, ClinicalTrials.gov, and the GEO.

BioPortal: ontologies and integrated data resources at the click of a mouse

BioPortal not only provides investigators, clinicians, and developers ‘one-stop shopping’ to programmatically access biomedical ontologies, but also provides support to integrate data from a variety of biomedical resources.

Ontology-driven indexing of public datasets for translational bioinformatics

This work builds a prototype system for ontology based annotation and indexing of biomedical data that enables ontology-based querying and integration of tissue and gene expression microarray data, and enables identification of datasets on specific diseases across both repositories.

Semantic annotation for knowledge management: Requirements and a survey of the state of the art

Annotation for the Semantic Web

The web has gone a long way since its humble beginnings of being a network aimed at transferring text messages from one place to another. Today’s documents are extremely rich, having all sorts of

Frontiers in Artificial Intelligence and Applications

This work traces the roots of ontology-drive information systems (ODIS) back to early work in artificial intelligence and software engineering, and examines two critical ideas in software engineering: raising the level of abstraction, and the use of formal methods.
