Pandemics and Other Disasters     (2A)

Agenda     (2B)

  • Kenneth Baclawski Overview of the Pandemics Track Slides     (2B1)
  • Asiyah Lin Post-workshop Report of WCO-2020: Workshop on COVID-19 Ontologies Slides     (2B2)
    • Dr. Asiyah Yu Lin has an Interdisciplinary background in medicine, immunology, molecular biology, medical informatics, and e-commerce entrepreneurship with a focus in ontology-based data, information and knowledge management and integration solutions for bio and health data. She is a knowledgeable ontologist with expertise in a wide variety of artificial intelligence (AI) semantic technologies, strategic design, business analysis, process development, and project control and coordination in the medicinal product regulation and biomedical research space. Asiyah advocates leveraging ontologies for data interoperability and establishing a knowledge eco-system for science and regulatory communities. She initiated and manages the OHDSI Medical Device Working Group, COVID-19 ontology harmonization group, and the FDA-NIH ontology round table discussion group. Currently, with the NIH’s Data and Technology Advancement National Service Scholar program, Asiyah coordinates NIH internal and external stakeholders for the NIH Cloud Platform Interoperability (NCPI) to build the genomics data ecosystem.

Discussion     (2E)

[11:55] RaviSharma: Hello and welcome     (2E1)

[12:09] RaviSharma: Asiyah Lin is reporting on a 2-day workshop     (2E2)

[12:11] RaviSharma: Speakers included Yamagata, Asiyah and members of the Jackson Lab     (2E3)

[12:12] RaviSharma: Ontologies included Covoc, Codo and Cido     (2E4)

[12:13] RaviSharma: Harmonization and standardization were the main issues     (2E5)

[12:15] RaviSharma: One purpose of harmonization was to find protein targets and drug candidates for treating COVID-19.     (2E6)

[12:17] RaviSharma: Data was in semantically connected property graphs and Knowledge graphs     (2E7)

[12:17] RaviSharma: Asiyah is reviewing the workshop     (2E8)

[12:19] Leia Dickerson: What language are semantic labeled property graphs written and which graph platform is used? (is it Cypher or something else)     (2E9)

[12:19] RaviSharma: Health Canada, N3C and others participated in the workshop.     (2E10)

[12:20] RaviSharma: Workshop activities included     (2E11)

[12:24] RaviSharma: DeBellis and Dutta will be discussing CODO from India next week.     (2E18)

[12:29] RaviSharma: There will be a Mini Hackathon on March 15, 2022.     (2E19)

[12:30] RaviSharma: Testing     (2E20)

[12:30] RaviSharma: FDA EUA     (2E21)

[12:33] RaviSharma: FDA NIH Health Canada and Univ collaborations (Miami) focussing on tools     (2E22)

[12:33] RaviSharma: FDA Data standards work     (2E23)

[12:36] RaviSharma: Data are being used by communities, FAIR ontologies, data challenges,     (2E24)

[12:43] RaviSharma: Answer to Gary Berg-Cross's request for examples: Biomedical ontology is a small community, Alpha reuses a lot of OBO and is harmonizable.     (2E25)

[12:44] RaviSharma: Gary - roles, ENVO, ES, hierarchies were to be consistent     (2E26)

[12:46] RaviSharma: OBO foundry needs to better align, BFO is old 20 years?     (2E27)

[12:46] RaviSharma: Not yet productive level, a lot of work TBD on OBO foundries.     (2E28)

[12:47] RaviSharma: Asiyah's portfolio work is to improve ontologies     (2E29)

[12:51] RaviSharma: Asiyah's email addresses are available on request.     (2E30)

[12:57] Robert Rovetto: Top level ontologies are not necessary and are often not desired. There are technical reasons not to use them. In any case, anyone can make their own.     (2E31)

[12:58] RaviSharma: Asiyah agreed and showed interest in data sharing models     (2E32)

[13:01] RaviSharma: Gary contact     (2E33)

[13:01] RaviSharma: Asiyah made request for Workshop proposal     (2E34)

[13:02] RaviSharma: End of Sept is new data after ICBO meeting     (2E35)

[13:03] RaviSharma: Ram - on validation of BFO What is possible     (2E36)

[13:03] RaviSharma: OBO foundry is somewhat using BFO     (2E37)

[13:06] Gary Berg-Cross: Trojahn, Cassia, et al. "Foundational ontologies meet ontology matching: A survey." Semantic Web Preprint (2021): 1-20.     (2E38)

[13:07] Robert Rovetto: There are and have been other top level ontologies, such as DOLCE, GFO, UFO, SUMO, Cyc, YAMATO     (2E39)

[13:09] Gary Berg-Cross: see also "BFO and DOLCE: So Far, So Close... NICOLA GUARINO"     (2E41)
