Background

The National Center for Biomedical Ontology will host a two-day workshop focused on defining the requirements for representing biomedical phenotypes using ontologies. The workshop will take place on April XX-XX, 2008 in Room M-112 of the Lane Medical Library in Stanford.

The goal of the workshop is to collect the requirements for representing phenotypes by surveying the breadth of use cases for using ontologies to represent them. The workshop will be the first step in coordinating efforts to represent phenotypes in a breadth of biomedical domains. An additional goal is to explore possibility in attaining a representation ("annotation model") for ontology-based representation of phenotypes.

The workshop will include in-depth studies of use cases for representing phenotypes in a spectrum of current large initiatives spanning the biomedical spectrum, including BIRN, CVRG, the CTSA program, and the model organism community.

The following topics will be addressed:

- definition of "phenotype" (and related notions, such as eligibility criteria)

- ontologies needed to represent clinical phenotypes

- spectrum of use cases for describing phenotypes across breadth of biomedical community (molecular, cellular, biological, and clinical)

- requirements for modeling phenotypes, comparing EAV/EV models and richer representations (e.g., SWRL)

- the use of common relations (along the lines advanced in the OBO Relation Ontology) in grammars

- tool support for creating phenotype descriptions ("annotations") and storing them

The workshop is designed to be of value to researchers, resource developers, and clinicians interested in describing phenotypes in computationally-accessible formats.

This workshop is being funded by the National Institutes of Health (NIH) through the NIH Roadmap for Medical Research, Grant 1 U 54 HG004028. Information on the National Centers for Biomedical Computing can be found at http://nihroadmap.nih.gov/bioinformatics.

Workgroups and Mailing List

At the conclusion of the workshop, if participants are interested in continuing the discussions and undertaking the work related to representing phenotypes, a mailing list for these discussions will be set up.

In addition, a Wiki to host materials related to the workshop has been created (http://www.neuroinformatics.org:8080/xwiki/bin/view/ImageOntology/Main). Please visit this Wiki to obtain current information on the projects and activities related to these efforts.
