Semedico: A Comprehensive Semantic Search Engine for the Life Sciences

Erik Faessler, Udo Hahn
2017 Proceedings of ACL 2017, System Demonstrations  
SEMEDICO is a semantic search engine designed to support literature search in the life sciences by integrating the semantics of the domain at all stages of the search process-from query formulation via  ...  query processing up to the presentation of results.  ...  This way, SEMEDICO prefers query matches on shorter text passages over those in larger ones.  ...

Constructing a biodiversity terminological inventory

Nhung T. H. Nguyen, Axel J. Soto, Georgios Kontonatsios, Riza Batista-Navarro, Sophia Ananiadou, Robert Guralnick
2017 PLoS ONE  
An assessment of the interface by domain experts reveals that our query expansion based on related names is useful for increasing the number of relevant documents retrieved.  ...  Domain-specific terminological resources, which include term variants, synonyms and related terms, are thus important in supporting semantic search over large textual archives.  ...  Whilst three of the queries were pre-supplied by us, for the other three, the users were asked to enter their own preferred species names belonging to any of the following three taxonomic classes: "Aves  ...

Materializing multi-relational databases from the web using taxonomic queries

Matthew Michelson, Sofus A. Macskassy, Steven N. Minton, Lise Getoor
2011 Proceedings of the fourth ACM international conference on Web search and data mining - WSDM '11  
Creating seeds often requires more domain knowledge than taxonomic queries, and previous work has shown that extraction methods may be sensitive to which input seeds they are given.  ...  Further, our approach uses taxonomic queries to bootstrap the extraction, rather than the more traditional "seed instances."  ...  We use the domain name rather than the specific taxonomic query for the column, since relevant columns can be related to a domain without being specifically related to the taxonomic query.  ...

Learning non-taxonomic relationships from web documents for domain ontology construction

David Sánchez, Antonio Moreno
2008 Data & Knowledge Engineering  
The discovery of non-taxonomic relationships is often neglected, even though it is a fundamental point in structuring domain knowledge.  ...  It is able to discover domain-related verbs, extract non-taxonomically related concepts and label relationships, using the Web as corpus.  ...  are rejected (is/are, include, etc.) as it is preferred to treat the taxonomic case is treated independently.  ...

Berkeley PHOG: PhyloFacts orthology group prediction web server

Ruchira S. Datta, Christopher Meacham, Bushra Samad, Christoph Neyer, Kimmen Sjölander
2009 Nucleic Acids Research  
PHOG is based on pre-computed trees in the PhyloFacts resource, and contains over 366 K orthology groups with a minimum of three species.  ...  the TreeFam-A manually curated orthology database show that PHOG provides a combination of high recall and precision competitive with both InParanoid and OrthoMCL, and allows users to target different taxonomic  ...  The second table displays a table of all orthologs found over all PHOGs containing the query, listed in alphabetic order by taxonomic origin.  ...

Taxonomy-based relaxation of query answering in relational databases

Davide Martinenghi, Riccardo Torlone
2014 The VLDB journal  
Traditional information search in which queries are posed against a known and rigid schema over a structured database is shifting toward a Web scenario in which exposed schemas are vague or absent and  ...  We first propose a conservative extension of the relational algebra for this model in which special operators allow the specification of relaxed queries over vaguely structured information.  ...  based on resource similarity [9] , and by exploiting domain knowledge and user preferences [20] .  ...

Natural Selection: Finding Specimens in a Natural History Collection [chapter]

Marieke van, Antal van den Bosch, Steve Hunt, Marian van der Meij, Rene Dekker, Piroska Lendvai
2011 Changing Diversity in Changing Environment  
The domain knowledge comes from taxonomic and geographic resources (see Subsections 4 and 4), a domain ontology, domain-specific rules and analysis of typical queries in the domain.  ...  On its own, the COMPLEX query mode improves the mean average precision with 5.83% over the ALL query mode, and with 7.59% for the ANY query mode.  ...

An Automated Phylogenetic Tree-Based Small Subunit rRNA Taxonomy and Alignment Pipeline (STAP)

Dongying Wu, Amber Hartman, Naomi Ward, Jonathan A. Eisen, Jean-Nicolas Volff
2008 PLoS ONE  
It generates both high-quality multiple sequence alignments and phylogenetic trees, and thus can be used for multiple purposes including phylogenetically-based taxonomic assignments and analysis of species  ...  Step 2 makes an initial approximate taxonomic identification of the query sequence within that domain. Step 3 does a fine-scale phylogenetic analysis within the taxonomic group identified in Step 2.  ...  The three-domain subset. A separate three-domain subset including sequences from all three domains of life was prepared solely for use in assigning query sequences to a domain.  ...

STC: Semantic Taxonomical Clustering for Service Category Learning [article]

Sourish Dasgupta, Satish Bhat, Yugyung Lee
2013 arXiv   pre-print
In this paper, we have proposed a self-organizing based clustering algorithm called Semantic Taxonomical Clustering (STC) for taxonomically organizing services with self-organizing information and knowledge  ...  This is because of higher universal preference of the Plug-in match over the Subsume match that assumes the match strength order is preserved for both the Input and the Output features.  ...  queries ( ) that have been mapped over the cluster We first observed the performance of STC over the O-cluster space with respect to each of the 29 OWLS-TC queries (O-cluster space query accuracy).  ...

A Contextual Personalization Approach Based on Ontological Knowledge

David Vallet, Miriam Fernández, Pablo Castells, Phivos Mylonas, Yannis Avrithis
2006 European Conference on Artificial Intelligence  
Towards that scope, we propose a novel contextual knowledge modeling scheme, and an approach for the dynamic, contextual activation of semantic user preferences to better represent user interests in coherence  ...  of preferences over time.  ...  Given the domain ontology O, we define the set of all preferences over O as PO = [0, 1] |O| , where given p ∈ PO, the value px represents the preference intensity for a concept x ∈ O in the ontology.  ...

2004 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
The proposed personalisation facilities include: querying learning object descriptions to return results tailored towards users' individual goals and preferences; the ability to define views over the learning  ...  Declarative Queries and Views Finding LOs in a SeLeNe will rely on RQL, a declarative query language offering browsing and querying facilities over RDF/S descriptions.  ...  The SeLeNe will also provide browsing and searching facilities over the LO information space, which return results tailored towards users' individual goals and preferences.  ...

How users interact with biodiversity information using TaxonTree

Bongshin Lee, Cynthia Sims Parr, Dana Campbell, Benjamin B. Bederson
2004 Proceedings of the working conference on Advanced visual interfaces - AVI '04  
Users with different levels of interest in the domain had different interaction preferences.  ...  Many other domains share this problem. We developed an interface, TaxonTree, to visualize the taxonomic hierarchy of animal names.  ...  Most users preferred browsing the tree over searching.  ...
