SESL Semantic Enrichment of Scientific Literature
Try this at your desk…. Which diseases are correlated to TCF7L2? Gene/Protein Literature – Full Text Literature - Abstracts Gene expression Inherited diseases
Try it again with Pistoia’s SESL….
…all in one report from one search HOW? A standard ontology, data model, query language, report structure, etc.
The Deliverables of SESL A Proof-of-Concept to demonstrate feasibility and clarify requirements A functional specification for query brokering, result filtering, report generation A potential for a new Business Model
