Birds of a Feather

Topic Leader Day Room

Cancer Biomedical Informatics Grid (caBIG)

Peter Covitz

Tuesday, 12:30 p.m.

Room B1

Description: Meeting for those who are involved or interested in the caBIG program sponsored by the U.S. National Cancer Institute. caBIG is a nationwide program with international participation that connects the entire basic, translational, and clinical cancer research informatics communities. A broad array of research tools are under development in the program, all of which are implementing caBIG compatibility requirements for interoperability. The BoF session will include a brief overview of the current state of caBIG, followed by interactive discussions on any topics and tools of interest to the participants.

Semantic types: towards a common annotation schema for biomedical literature

D. Rebholz-Schuhmann

Tuesday, 12:30 p.m.

Room B2

Description: Identification of biomedical terms in literature is essential for successful information extraction. We seek to build a user community that will collaborate on a common XML-based annotation framework for biomedical and other semantic types. The exchange of compliant modules and corpora will increase progress in biomedical text mining research.

Bioinformatics Core Facilities

Fran Lewitter

Tuesday, 12:30 p.m.

Room B3

Description: Running a bioinformatics core facility poses a number of challenges including funding of the facility, teaching bioinformatics courses, supporting software, balancing the collaboration requests, and more. We will meet during ISMB in order to exchange ideas about these issues.
