  1. Proceedings

    Issues in learning an ontology from text

    Ontology construction for any domain is a labour intensive and complex process. Any methodology that can reduce the cost and increase efficiency has the potential to make a major impact in the life sciences. T...

    Inferring novel disease indications for known drugs by semantically linking drug action and disease mechanism relationships

    Discovering that drug entities already approved for one disease are effective treatments for other distinct diseases can be highly beneficial and cost effective. To do this predictively, our conjecture is that...
