Biomedical Domain

Our work on corporate memory, in particular our corporate semantic Web approach (ontologies and XML technology), is applied to several biomedical applications: use of linguistic techniques for building an experiment memory for transcriptome analysis (in the framework of the MEAT project in collaboration with IPMC), use of a medical ontology, viewpoints and CSCW for supporting collaborative work in a healthcare network (in the context of the ACI Ligne de Vie project in collaboration with the SARL Nautilus and SPIM (Service de Santé Publique et d'Informatique médicale de la Faculté de Médecine Broussais-Hôtel Dieu)). In the framework of SeaLife IST project, we work on a semantic browser for Life Sciences, with scenarios such as evidence-based medicine, or literature and patent mining. In Immunosearch project, our work on literature mining seems useful for supporting experiments aimed at studying harmlessness of the molecules used in perfumes, aromatics and cosmetics
