  1. Background and motivation (9AM-10AM)
    • Brief overview of major biological problems BIRN seeks to address [BIRN]
    • 10-10:15amBreak
  2. Tools (10:15AM-Noon)
    • Discussion and presentation of tools used by BIRN (e.g., Bonfire, Mediator) [BIRN]
    • Tutorial on Protégé and plugins (examples from other ontology projects) [Stanford]
    • Discussion
  3. Ontology Usage (1PM-5PM)
    • 1-2:30pm Example scenarios from current cBiO Core 3 projects (sequence data annotation, PaTO, epressing biological concepts in terms of an ontology; annotation tools) [Stanford]
    • 2:30-3pm Break
    • 3-4pm Possible future directions (formal relation ontologies, composed annotations, image annotation with ontologies) [Stanford]
    • 4-5pm Discussion

  1. Basics of Ontologies (9AM-Noon)
    • 9-10am Discuss current capabilities and challenges related to ontologies in BIRN [BIRN]
    • 10-10:30Break
    • 10:30-11:30 How to Build an Ontology [Barry]
    • 11:30-noon The Ontology of Relations [Barry]
  2. Content (1PM-3PM)
    • 1-2pm Best practices; lessons learned from other ontology development projects [Barry]
    • 2-3pm Look at ontologies used by BIRN in depth (send out BIRN ontologies for us to review in advance)

    • 3-3:30pmBreak
  3. Potential Applications: what do we need to get there from here? (3:30PM-5PM)
    • Integrate multi-scale, multi-modality (images, molecular, functional) data for discovery
    • Computer reasoning with neuroanatomical/spatial component of Neuroscience data
    • What tools to be developed, what content should be put into OWL, what tools cBiO is developing
