Transcript

  • 1. ChemSpider: Collecting and Curating the World’s Chemistry with the Community
  • 2. What are Trustworthy Sources Online?
  • 3. What is the modern online search?
  • 4. What is Methane?
  • 5. What is Methane?
  • 6. What ELSE is Methane???
  • 7. Chemistry is Complex
  • 8. Where is chemistry online?
    • Encyclopedic articles (Wikipedia)
    • Chemical company databases
    • Metabolic pathway databases
    • Property databases
    • Patents with chemical structures
    • Drug Discovery data
    • Scientific publications
    • Blogs/Wikis
    • Why not integrate it all?!
  • 9.
    • As few interfaces as possible
    What do humans want?
  • 10. A Pragmatic Vision
      • “ Build a Structure Centric Community”
      • Integrate chemical structure data on the web
      • Create a “structure-based hub” to information and data
      • Provide access to structure-based “algorithms”
      • Let chemists contribute their own data
      • Allow the community to curate/correct data
  • 11. Resourcing structure-based info
  • 12. ChemSpider Searches
  • 13. What is Levulinic Acid?
  • 14. Basic Info
  • 15. External Links
  • 16. External Links to Data
  • 17. Patent Integration
  • 18. Google Patent Integration
  • 19. Access to Articles
    • RSC Journals
    • RSC Books
    • PubMed
    • Google Scholar
    • Google Books
    • Microsoft Academic Search
  • 20. Articles Linked
  • 21. The RSC Publishing Platform (Beta)
  • 22. RSC Databases
    • Direct links into six Royal Society of Chemistry databases
      • Mass Spectrometry Bulletin
      • Laboratory Hazards Bulletin
      • Methods in Organic Synthesis
      • Catalysts and Catalyzed Reactions
      • Natural Product Updates
      • Analytical Abstracts
  • 23. Access to Articles
  • 24. Google Scholar
  • 25. Experimental and Predicted Properties
  • 26. Experimental and Predicted Properties
  • 27. Links from ChemSpider
      • Chemical suppliers
      • Other publications
      • Analytical Data
      • Related Reactions
      • Wikipedia
      • Patents
      • “ Everything”
  • 28. Linked Data on the Web
  • 29. How “Big” is ChemSpider?
      • Nearly 25 million compounds, >400 data sources
      • A crowdsourced deposition and curation platform
      • Grows daily – more depositions, more data
      • But now also a publishing platform for the community
  • 30. Citizen Scientists Add and Validate
  • 31. Crowd-sourcing Chemistry Curation
    • Crowd-sourced curation: identify errors, add and edit data in a “controlled environment”
  • 32. Citizens as Data Sources
  • 33. What do computers want? “Interfaces”
    • Web services
    flickr.com/photos/microcosmos
  • 34. ChemSpider Everywhere: ChemMobi
  • 35. Mobile ChemSpider
  • 36. ChemSpider Multimedia Content
    • The web is of course a multimedia host today
    • ChemSpider is a multimedia host for Chemistry
      • Images
      • MP3s
      • Videos
      • Chemistry data: spectra, crystal structures
  • 37. Multimedia Content Holder
  • 38. Periodic Table Images
  • 39. CAS SciFinder
  • 40. reaxys
  • 41. Differences between ChemSpider, Reaxys and SciFinder
    • Everything on Reaxys and Scifinder is curated
    • The data resources can be over a 100 years old
    • The platforms are commercial and “read-only”
    • ChemSpider is free, to everyone
    • Data are in a state of ongoing curation & annotation
    • Data resources are from the “electronic era”
    • Data are expanded daily and enhanced on an ongoing basis
    • The platform delivers integrated algorithm access
  • 42. Semantic Markup: Project Prospect
  • 43. Semantic Linking of Publications
    • What would you want to link off a structure?
      • Chemical suppliers
      • Other publications
      • Analytical Data
      • Related Reactions
      • Wikipedia
      • Patents
      • “ Everything”
  • 44. Chemistry on the Internet FUTURE
    • The “semantic web” for chemistry is in place
    • Crowdsourcing is commonplace
    • Chemists will search the web by “structure”
    • Chemistry articles indexed and searchable
    • Reduced number of searches to find data because data are integrated – compounds, vendors, syntheses, data, publications and patents
    • A world of Open Access and Open Data
  • 45. Community Contribution
    • ChemSpider wins “Community
    • contribution” best practice award”
    • ChemSpider wins I-Expo innovation award, Paris, France, June 2010
