Approaches to Storing and Querying Structural Information in Botanical Specimen Descriptions.

Conference Proceeding
Paterson, T., & Kennedy, J. (2004)
Approaches to Storing and Querying Structural Information in Botanical Specimen Descriptions. In L. M. MacKinnon, A. G. Burger, & P. Trinder (Eds.), Key technologies for data management: Proceedings of the 21st Annual British National Conference on Databases (BNCOD21), 80-91
We are developing an ontology as a defined terminology for the taxonomic description of botanical specimens. To allow these descriptions to unambiguously refer to a given plan...

VIPER: a visualisation tool for exploring inheritance inconsistencies in genotyped pedigrees

Journal Article
Paterson, T., Graham, M., Kennedy, J., & Law, A. (2012)
VIPER: a visualisation tool for exploring inheritance inconsistencies in genotyped pedigrees. BMC Bioinformatics, 13/8, https://doi.org/10.1186/1471-2105-13-S8-S5
Pedigree genotype datasets are used for analysing genetic inheritance and to map genetic markers and traits. Such datasets consist of hundreds of related animals genotyped for...

Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration

Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Kukla, R., & Paterson, T. (2005)
Scientific names are ambiguous as identifiers for biological taxa: their context and definition are required for accurate data integration. In B. Ludaescher, & L. Raschid (Eds.), Data Integration in the Life Sciences, 80-95. https://doi.org/10.1007/11530084_8
Biologists use scientific names to label the organisms described in their data; however, these names are not unique identifiers for taxonomic entities. Alternative taxonomic c...

Visual cleaning of genotype data.

Conference Proceeding
Kennedy, J., Graham, M., Paterson, T., & Law, A. (2013)
Visual cleaning of genotype data. In Proceedings of BioVis 2013, 105-112. https://doi.org/10.1109/BioVis.2013.6664353
While some data cleaning tasks can be performed automatically, many more require expert human guidance to steer the cleaning process, especially if erroneous or unclean data i...

Ontology-Driven Automated Generation of Data Entry Interfaces to Databases

Conference Proceeding
Cannon, A., Kennedy, J. B., Paterson, T., & Watson, M. F. (2004)
Ontology-Driven Automated Generation of Data Entry Interfaces to Databases. In H. Williams, & L. Mackinnon (Eds.), Key Technologies for Data Management; Lecture Notes in Computer Science, 150-164. doi:10.1007/978-3-540-27811-5_15
This paper discusses an ontology based approach for the automatic generation of data entry interfaces to databases. An existing domain ontology is mapped to a system domain mo...

Redeeming pedigree data with an interactive error cleaning visualisation.

Conference Proceeding
Graham, M., Kennedy, J., Paterson, T., & Law, A. (2012)
Redeeming pedigree data with an interactive error cleaning visualisation. In Proceedings of Advanced Visual Interfaces 2012, 741-744. https://doi.org/10.1145/2254556.2254698
We describe a visual data cleansing application for pedigree genotype data, which is used to redeem otherwise unusable pedigree data sets. Biologists and bioinformaticians dyn...
