Ontologies with SciBite: How Ontology enrichment is essential in maintaining Clean Data

Ontologies have become a key piece of infrastructure for organisations as they look to manage their metadata to improve the reusability and findability of their data. This is the final blog in our blog series 'Ontologies with SciBite'. Follow the blog series to learn how we've addressed the challenges associated with both consuming and developing ontologies.

Ontologies with SciBite

Keeping ontologies up to date can be a laborious, manual task, which can result in potentially important terms or changes being missed. Curators typically need to maintain awareness of the evolving language in their particular domain, particularly in light of new scientific discoveries in areas such as CRISPR and technology such as 10x Genomics and Drop-Seq.

SciBite is working to simplify this process. Our brand-new ontology management platform CENtree leverages machine learning techniques to support ontology management by suggesting parent classes, synonyms and relationship connections when adding new terms are being added. This, along with CENtree’s flexibility to introduce customized changes, that can be annotated to communicate edits across teams, is vital in producing ontologies that meet your needs.

In our last four blogs we have discussed the benefits of centralising Ontology Management:

  • Apply open standards and FAIR data principles to facilitate easy data exchange across multiple platforms
  • Simplify visualisation to democratise data curation across organisations
  • Employ governance to enable ontology management from multiple contributors
  • Utilise GIT-like version control to quickly and easily assimilate updates from ontology providers and collaborators  

If you haven’t already read our previous blogs on the benefits of centralising Ontology Managementwhy simplifying visualisation and curation is better for everyone and the importance of facilitating collaboration and integration.
