Health & Biology

Our work on community memory, in particular our Semantic Web approach (ontologies and RDF/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 BioMarker project in collaboration with IPMC and ImmunoSearch). 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.
