Publication: Improving data and knowledge management to better integrate health care and research

Once upon a time, several engineers, biologists and clinicians realized that a lot of information in biomedicine was partitioned into ‘silos’ that do not intercommunicate. These silos were a side effect of the existence of different disciplines required to, for example, develop new drugs. The engineers decided to dispose of the…

Publication: Scientific competency questions as the basis for semantically enriched open pharmacological space development

Molecular information systems play an important part in modern data-driven drug discovery. They do not only support decision making but also enable new discoveries via association and inference. In this review, we outline the scientific requirements identified by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) Open PHACTS consortium for the design of…

Publication: Human diseases through the lens of network biology

On December 7, 2012, Posted by , In Publications, By , , With No Comments

One of the challenges raised by next generation sequencing (NGS) is the identification of clinically relevant mutations among all the genetic variation found in an individual. Network biology has emerged as an integrative and systems-level approach for the interpretation of genome data in the context of health and disease. Network…

Publication: Scientific Lenses over Linked Data: An approach to support task specific views of the data. A vision.

Within complex scientific domains such as pharmacology, operational equivalence between two concepts is often context-, user- and task-specific. Existing Linked Data integration procedures and equivalence services do not take the context and task of the user into account. We present a vision for enabling users to control the notion of operational…

Publication: Theoretical and technological building blocks for an innovation accelerator

Modern science is a main driver of technological innovation. The efficiency of the scientific system is of key importance to ensure the competitiveness of a nation or region. However, the scientific system that we use today was devised centuries ago and is inadequate for our current ICT-based society: the peer…

Publication: Open PHACTS: A semantic knowledge infrastructure for public and commercial drug discovery research

Technology advances in the last decade have led to a “digital revolution” in biomedical research. Much greater volumes of data can be generated in much less time, transforming the way researchers work. Yet, for those seeking to develop new drugs to treat human disease, the task of assembling a coherent…
