Better biodata with ontologies and linked data workshop

BioData Club

Have you ever wondered…

  • What an ontology is and why anyone would use one?
  • Who’s using ontologies and how are they using them?
  • How ontologies are created and maintained?
  • How to use an ontology to make your research data more reusable?

Come to the next BioData Club to find out! After a brief introduction to the subject, we’ll walk through a modified version of the Open Biological and Biomedical Ontologies tutorial to get first-hand experience using biomedical ontologies to mark-up research data for improved reuse.

Better biodata with ontologies and linked data
Feb. 15, 4 to 5:30 p.m.
BICC, room 124

No previous experience with ontologies or linked data is required. Bring a laptop and your curiosity!

BioData Club is an informal community at OHSU dedicated to promoting a fun and supportive culture of interdisciplinary co-learning in data science skills and open science principles. BioData Club is a partnership of the OHSU Library and the Department of Medical Informatics and Clinical Epidemiology. We welcome everyone at all skill levels who aim to better their skills in all things data.

We want to replace statistics anxiety and code fear with inspiration and motivation to learn and share.
