Abstract

We present our effort to enhance a bio-specimen repository search application with semantic search capability. We describe the nature of the original data, the application of text processing tools, and the leveraging of existing terminologies and ontologies to build an application ontology that supports the bio-specimen search system. We also describe few of the difficulties we have encountered and possible ways for addressing them in our future work. Copyright
