Introduction to Biomedical Ontologies 3: Anatomy of an Ontology Annotation, part 2

submitted by: jennifer.r.smith
Are you missing the added value that you could be getting from ontology annotations? You know what ontologies are—maybe you've even used them on occasion. But if the only part of an ontology annotation that you take into account is the term itself, you could be skipping over valuable information that the other components of annotations supply. This video will give you insight into what that "valuable information" is and how to interpret what you see when you examine ontology annotations.

Evidence Biochip Analyser

submitted by: Randox Laboratories
Evidence is the world's first fully automated multiplex immunoassay. The Evidence performs simultaneous quantitative detection of a wide test menu across the full Randox portfolio of biochip assays. Biochips are 9x9mm solid substrates with multiple Discrete Test Regions (DTRs) arranged in an array on the surface. At present, Randox biochips hold 25 DTRs but, if required, the test capacity can be increased dramatically. Biochip Array Technology relies on the basic principles of immunology,...

Introduction to Biomedical Ontologies #2: Anatomy of an Ontology Annotation, part 1

submitted by: jennifer.r.smith
Do you find that, like many who use biomedical ontologies, the only part of an ontology "annotation" you use is the ontology term itself? Perhaps you've noticed from time to time that there are some other things that seem to tag along with the ontology term but never really paid attention to those. Or perhaps you are just learning about ontologies and you want to know where the ontology "annotations" come from and what they are based on. This video gives a general overview of how ontology...

Sodium Channels and Pain

submitted by: alex01

S. Waxman, MD, PhD. - Medical need for new analgesics is discussed by S. Waxman (Yale University) who evaluated the role of selective subtypes of sodium channels, particularly 1.7 and 1.8 subtypes, in the perception of pain. There is an unmet medical need for drugs to treat chronic pain and inhibitors of
selective sodium channels are in development as novel analgesics.
