TOWARDS ON-DEMAND BIOMEDICAL KNOWLEDGE EXTRACTION

Vincenzo Lanza, M. Ignazia Cascio, Chun-Hsi Huang

Abstract

This paper outlines a UMLS-compatible distributed genomic semantic network. The system aims at providing cooperative reasoning on distributed genomic information, complying with the UMLS concept representation, from distributed repositories. The distributed semantic network has currently incorporated most of the 871,584 concepts (named by 2.1 million terms) of the 2002 version UMLS Metathesaurus, with inter-concept relationships across multiple vocabularies and concept categorization supported. Modern information and compute infrastructure is incorporated to allow seamless access to geographically dispersed users.
