SciBite releases new version of CENtree, the revolutionary ontology management tool for Life Sciences organisations

Cambridge, UK - SciBite, the award-winning semantic software company, today announced the release of CENtree 1.0, the latest version of their innovative, collaborative platform which revolutionises the way Life Sciences organisations manage and release ontologies.

CENtree by SciBite

Ontologies play a critical role in semantic enrichment, enabling unstructured scientific text to be transformed into clean, contextualised data which can be understood and exploited by computational approaches, such as machine learning. Historically, maintaining multiple, evolving ontologies from both public and proprietary sources, has been a complex undertaking, requiring significant ontology expertise. This presents a bottleneck for most organisations and undermines the concept that an ontology should represent a shared understanding between experts.

CENtree is an enterprise ready multi-user platform for browsing and editing public and proprietary ontologies. With intuitive usability at its heart, CENtree makes loading, navigating and editing ontologies accessible to a wider audience. Artificial intelligence smart suggestion means users can enrich ontologies in a controlled way. For example, parent classes are suggested for a given term, helping users place the term in the ontology tree. CENtree has adopted FAIR data principles; ontologies are exportable in a wide variety of formats.

The focus of this release includes:

  • A simple role-based permission functionality, allowing control of who edits, suggest changes, approves, and views ontologies
  • Simple interface for loading, browsing and exporting ~40 public and private ontologies across a number of standard formats
  • Intuitive searching and results navigation
  • Collaborative editing model with commenting to track edits along with in-app and email notifications
  • Create proprietary ontologies
  • Expansion of AI-assisted suggestions to class property types including definitions, super classes, and relationship types
  • Upload latest ontology versions into existing version
  • APIs to facilitate integration with existing system
