The TURBO (Transforming and Unifying Research with Biomedical Ontologies) Group was formed to accelerate finding and connecting key information from clinical records for research through semantic associations to the processes that generated the clinical data.
The new release of the Ontology for Biobanking (OBIB) reflects collaborative efforts with biobanks to represent specimens, collection of specimens, and specimen containers. Details are available at github. It can be browsed at Ontobee.
A description of Ontodog, a web-based ontology community view generator, has just been published as an Applications Note in Bioinformatics. Ontodog was developed as a collaboration with Oliver He's group at the University of Michigan.
