Revision as of 10:41, 1 April 2012

The National Center for Biomedical Ontology (NCBO) in collaboration with the Protein Ontology (PRO) and the Infectious Disease Ontology (IDO) will host a three-day dissemination workshop in Buffalo, NY on June 11-13, 2012.

Day 1 will provide a survey of current ontology-based research in immunology and infectious disease with a view to future coordination among ontology developers and users in this field.
Day 2 will be focused on flow cytometry.
Day 3 will include a session devoted to the use of ontologies to assist clinicians working with infectious disease data, followed by a session on the Ontology for General Medical Science.

Goals

Provisional goals of the meeting are:

To identify and coordinate activities on-going in immunology ontology and related fields, with special attention to the use of ontologies to support clinical data analysis in flow cytometry and other fields.

Registration

This meeting is free for registered participants. Space is limited and those interested in participating should contact Barry Smith as soon as possible.

Ontologies and Flow Cytometry Informatics

Background Increasingly, flow cytometry is being employed in clinical laboratories for the diagnosis, prognosis and monitoring of disease. The advent of highly multidimensional flow cytometry and automated gating algorithms for the analysis of flow cytometry data, coupled with the rise of personalized medicine, are poised to expand greatly the need for a reliable, structured

framework for the representation of the types of cells present in human blood and tissues. We are currently enhancing the representation of hematopoietic and other cell types in the Cell Ontology (CL) to allow for the logical definition of cell types based on cellular attributes, and in doing so we rely on relations to terms of the Protein Ontology (PRO) as a key component of these definitions. The goal of today's session is explore how the use of clinical flow cytometry data can serve as a driver of ontology development in both the PRO and the CL by assessing current standard clinical assays and recent approaches based on automated gating of multidimensional flow cytometry.

Examples of questions to be addressed include:
Which protein isoforms and post-translationally modified forms identified by flow cytometry typing reagents need to be represented in the PRO to enable cell types defined in their terms to be represented in the CL?
How can use of the PRO and CL ontologies will promote standardization in interpretation and integration of clinical flow cytometry data?
