At the end of June, ONTOFORCE joined the EIT Health Data Empowerment Days in Nice, France, where EIT Health and their partner organizations came together to brainstorm in a hackathon-like setting. Besides taking part in the vendor challenge (we won 1st and 2nd prize), our main objective was working with the EIT Health staff and their 100+ partners on specific use cases. Here’s a report from these hands-on sessions and their results.
I recently spoke at the iRODS User Group Meeting 2018 (June 5-7 2018, Durham, NC, USA) on the FAIR principles and how our research community is using the semantic platform DISQOVER in our DataHub infrastructure. Here’s the story from that session explaining how we link on-premise clinical data with other sources to gain more, better and faster insights.
Public open data is crucial for research in the life sciences industry. ELIXIR’s latest report zooms in on that and on the role SMEs and start-ups play in building an open data ecosystem.
With the release of version 4.00 of our DISQOVER platform, we bring the power of Visual Analytics to your data discoveries. The deep integration with DISQOVER’s core linked data philosophy creates a unique offering, and allows you to endeavor data exploration journeys that were previously unthinkable.
One of the key types of information in DISQOVER is human genetic variations and their links to genes, diseases etc. We recently integrated two new data sources: 1000 Genomes and gnomAD. These data sources include human variation and genotype data derived from a large set of human individuals.
