A “Pistoia Alliance Debates” webinar
The Life Sciences face increasing volumes, variety and sources of data. In addition, there is a pressing need for better integration of data. Despite these needs data standards remain poorly defined and even when present, can often be overlooked or ignored. Ontologies are an important solution because they serve as the “smart glue” for data integration to semantically enable management of knowledge. This is hampered by multiple standards and many varying ontologies which overlap in the same data domain such as disease and phenotype. In response to these challenges we set up the Ontologies Mapping project in 2015 to support better tools, services and best practices for ontology management and mapping in the Life Sciences.
This webinar will bring together a panel of experts in the ontologies engineering field from Industry and Academia. It will be chaired by Ian Harrow (Consultant and Manager for the Pistoia OM project) and includes two more members of the OM project team:- Martin Romacker (Roche) and Yasmin Alam-Faruque (Eagle Genomics). Further panel members will be Simon Jupp (EMBL-EBI) and Lee Harland (SciBite).
