An Ontology-based Image Repository for a Biomedical Research Lab

Fong, Christine and Rosse, Cornelius and Clark, J. I. and Shapiro, Linda G and Brinkley, James F (2004) An Ontology-based Image Repository for a Biomedical Research Lab. In Proceedings, MedInfo 2004, pages 1598, San Francisco, CA.

We have developed a prototype web-based database for managing images acquired during experiments in a biomedical research lab studying the factors controlling cataract development. Based on an evolving ontology we are developing for describing the experimental data and protocols used in the lab, the image repository allows lab members to organize image data by multiple attributes. The use of an ontology for developing this and other tools will facilitate intercommunication among tools, and eventual data sharing with other researchers.
