Semantic web applications to variable discovery in the life sciences: a cloudy future?
Jonas S. Almeida,
University of Texas M.D.Anderson Cancer Center –
We do not have a semantic web as such yet and instead have a collection of semantic web technologies. These technologies have recently started to deliver on their promise of an interoperable world particularly in data driven initiatives that integrate data management with its analysis. In this presentation we will describe our own travails with identifying and putting to use data driven representations of biomolecular repositories for biomarker studies. The examples will include user-driven “incubation” of data models using a software prototype that manages their representation as dyadic predicates (s3db.org). This solution falls into the generic W3C’s Resource Description Framework (RDF). As this prototype is used by other groups as the server-side partner of client-side computational statistics applications we find that cloud computing presents a better solution for deployment of web data services. The different models of cloud computing will be briefly overviewed in the life sciences context.

Workshop “Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango” – 2nd Edition
Title: Workshop Metabolism and mathematical models: Two for a tango – 2nd Edition
Dates: October 25-26, 2022
Location: This workshop will be held in a virtual way
The topic of this workshop is metabolism in general, with a special focus, although not exclusive, on parasitology. Besides an exploration of the biological, biochemical and biomedical aspects, the workshop will also aim at presenting some of the mathematical modelling, algorithmic theory and software development that have become crucial to explore such aspects.
This workshop is being organised in the context of two projects, both with the Inria European Team Erable. One of the projects involves a partnership with the University of São Paulo (USP), in São Paulo, Brazil, more specifically the Institute of Mathematics and Statistics (IME) and the Institute of Biomedical Sciences – Inria Associated Team Capoeira – and the other involves the Inesc-ID/IST in Portugal, ETH in Zürich and EMBL in Heidelberg – H2020 Twinning Project Olissipo.
The workshop is open to all members of these two projects but also, importantly, to the community in general.
