NCBO Annotator community
For discussions on use cases and experiences with the NCBO Annotator, e.g. parameters, ontologies, semantic expansion, see the Annotator Users GoogleGroup and join in discussions with fellow users (group started March 2010).
Mouse Genome Informatics (MGI), The Jackson Laboratory
Researchers at the Jackson Lab are evaluating the utility of the Annotator Web service in triaging articles for curation based on the ontology terms recognized in their title and abstract.
- Mouse gross anatomy and development (EMAP)
- Mouse adult gross anatomy (MA)
- Mouse pathology (MPATH)
- Mammalian phenotype (MP)
- Human disease (DOID)
- Human developmental anatomy – Timed version (EHDA)
- Human developmental anatomy – Abstract version (EHDAA)
- Biological process
- Cellular component
- Molecular function
- Mouse/Human Gene dictionary (JAXMGD)
Center for Computational Biology and Bioinformatics, Indiana University
Researchers at the Mooney Lab are evaluating the utility of embedding the service in their research management system called Laboratree; so that any textual annotation created in Laboratree would also have corresponding ontology concept annotations.
Center for Computational Pharmacology (CCP), University of Colorado, Denver
Researchers at the Center for Computational Pharmacology are testing the Annotator in their UIMA platform.
- GO (BP, MF, CC)
- BRENDA tissue / enzyme source (BTO)
- Cell Type (CL)
- Chemical entities of biological interest (ChEBI)
- Evidence codes (ECO)
- Mammalian phenotype (MP)
- OBO relationship types (OBO_REL)
- Protein Ontology (PRO)
- Protein-protein Interaction (MI)
- Sequence Ontology (SO)
Center for Computational Pharmacology, University of California, San Francisco (UCSF)
Researchers working on Trialbank create annotations for HIV/AIDS clinical trials in order to provide a Web application for visualizing, and comparing the trials. They are evaluating the use of OBA to process the ‘health condition’, ‘intervention’ and ‘outcomes’ fields for trial records from [clinicaltrials.gov].
This reasearch was initiated in the context of the NCBO DBP: Analyzing Evidence in HIV Clinical Trials.
- Human disease
- Infectious disease
Department of Biomedical Informatics (DBMI), University of Pittsburgh
Researcher of Pr. Crowley's group are testing the OBA in the context of developing ODIE, a toolkit for using ontologies to extract information from free-text clinical documents and using free-text clinical documents to enrich existing ontologies.
This research was initiated in the context of the NCBO RO1: Ontology Development Information Extraction (ODIE).
Human and Molecular Genetics Center (HMGC), Medical College of Wisconsin
Radiological Sciences Lab (RSL), Stanford University
Developers at Collabrx are embedding the service in their Rex platform for processing user generated content; and will evaluate the suitability of using medical dictionaries for processing such content.
