Contents

Summary

The sections below are hierarchical classifications of biomedical computing software, currently focused on the NIH Roadmap National Centers for Biomedical Computing (NCBC). This effort stemmed out of a software ontology initiative and meeting minutes that were led by Ivo Dinov from the Center for Computational Biology. These data have been incorporated in the draft protege document (Daniel Rubin and Mark Musen)

NCIBI

The current version of our interactive tools and resources site is here: Tools and Resources review site

The site for contributing new records (and editing records that you have contributed), which requires that you be registered, is here: Tools and Resources registration site

This is an example of the new format for the same information: NCIBI Examples of Tool Metadata and Tool Classification

Magnet

Tools are broken down into 2 large categories: Analyses and Databases. Each category is further specified by functionality (analyses) or content (databases). Where available, URLs are provided. For analyses, the primary input data type is indicated in parentheses next to the name of the analytical tool. Databases are accompanied by associated querying tools (such tools are not listed here as separate entries).

Analyses: Regulatory/Signaling network reconstruction

Analyses: Network characterization

Analyses: Homology-based protein sequence classification

Analyses: Structured-based protein classification

  • Protein function pipeline (protein structure).

Analyses: Prediction of regulatory (cis) elements

Analyses: Protein structure prediction

  • Protein structure pipeline (protein sequence).
  • META-server (protein sequence).
  • Super-NEST (protein sequence).
  • Protein cavity and binding site prediction (protein structure).

Databases: Molecular interactions

Databases: Gene-phenotype associations

  • PhenotypeML DB.

IATR

The Internet Analysis Tool Registry (IATR) is a website dedicated to (trying to) provide a centrally available listing of all image analysis tools that are available to the neuroscience community in order to facilitate the development, identification, and sharing of tools that are of use to the general community. It is hoped that this helps the "tool developers" to get their tools to a larger user community and to reduce redundancy (or at least utilize tool redundancy to facilitate optimal tool design) in tool development.

IATR Site

As part of this effort, we have had users indicate software keywords to describe tool functionallity, funding source, interface options, operating platforms, etc. Through this collection of information, the following prototype image analysis software tool function vocabulary has been constructed.

Documentation

A recently accepted paper (to appear in Neuroinformatics) provides a lingthy description of the site and it's design. File:The Internet Analysis Tools Registry revised.doc

A little picture of the schema appears here: File:Iatr 2.jpg

IATR as an example NCBC 'Yellow Pages'

We have developed project-specific entry points into the registry. Thus, with one simple URL, one can come into the site at the result of a search for a specific set of tools. Examples of this include:


IATR Tool Vocabulary

This vocabulary is a prototype, work-in-progress, suggestion, open for input and revision kind of thing. Feel free to provide (constructuve!) feedback in this effort, and it's interoperation with other similar efforts.
