  • Thessen, Anne E.; Cui, Hong; Mozzherin, Dmitry (Hindawi Publishing, 2012)
    Centuries of biological knowledge are contained in the massive body of scientific literature, written for human-readability but too big for any one person to consume. Large-scale mining of information from the literature ...
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil; Egan, Mary G.; Coruzzi, Gloria; Lee, Ernest K.; DeSalle, Rob (BioMed Central, 2008-02-19)
    The availability of sequences from whole genomes to reconstruct the tree of life has the potential to enable the development of phylogenomic hypotheses in ways that have not been before possible. A significant bottleneck ...
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil (2007-04-08)
    Biological knowledge can be inferred from three major levels of information: molecules, organisms, and ecologies. Bioinformatics is an established field that has made significant advances in the development of systems and ...
  • David, John; Garrity, George M.; Greuter, Werner; Hawksworth, David L.; Jahn, Regine; Kirk, Paul M.; McNeill, John; Michel, Ellinor; Knapp, Sandra; Patterson, David J.; Tindall, Brian J.; Todd, Jonathan A.; Tol, Jan van; Turland, Nicholas J. (Pensoft, 2012-05-08)
    A set of terms recommended for use in facilitating communication in biological nomenclature is presented as a table showing broadly equivalent terms used in the traditional Codes of nomenclature. These terms are intended ...
  • Parfrey, Laura Wegener; Grant, Jessica; Tekle, Yonas I.; Lasek-Nesselquist, Erica; Morrison, Hilary G.; Sogin, Mitchell L.; Patterson, David J.; Katz, Laura A. (2010-06-01)
    An accurate reconstruction of the eukaryotic tree of life is essential to identify the innovations underlying the diversity of microbial and macroscopic (e.g. plants and animals) eukaryotes. Previous work has divided ...
  • Furfey, John F.; Devenish, Ann; Hurter, Colleen; Stafford, Nancy (2012-04-04)
    This poster focuses on the methods, tools and outcomes involved in creating two targeted research networks to support large, long-running research programs in the Woods Hole scientific community.
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil; Planet, Paul J.; DeSalle, Rob (2008-04)
    The success of character based DNA barcoding depends on the efficient identification of diagnostic character states from molecular sequences that have been organized hierarchically (e.g., according to phylogenetic methods). ...
  • Rach, J.; DeSalle, Rob; Sarkar, Indra Neil; Schierwater, B.; Hadrys, H. (Royal Society, 2007-11-08)
    DNA barcoding has become a promising means for identifying organisms of all life stages. Currently, phenetic approaches and tree-building methods have been used to define species boundaries and discover 'cryptic species'. ...
  • Goddard, Anthony; Wilson, Nathan; Cryer, Phil; Yamashita, Grant (BioMed Central, 2011-12-15)
    Today, an unprecedented volume of primary biodiversity data are being generated worldwide, yet significant amounts of these data have been and will continue to be lost after the conclusion of the projects tasked with ...
  • Thessen, Anne E.; Patterson, David J. (Pensoft Publishers, 2011-11-28)
    We review technical and sociological issues facing the Life Sciences as they transform into more data-centric disciplines - the “Big New Biology”. Three major challenges are: 1) lack of comprehensive standards; 2) lack of ...
  • Norton, Cathy N. (Great Cities Initiative of the University of Illinois at Chicago Library, 2008-08-04)
    E.O. Wilson, the noted entomologist at Harvard, "wished" for an authoritative encyclopedia of life that would be freely available on the worldwide web for the entire world. On 9 May 2007, The Encyclopedia of Life (EOL) was ...
  • Feltes, Carol; Gibson, Donna S.; Miller, Holly; Norton, Cathy N.; Pollock, Ludmila (2012-12-20)
    A group of librarians, other information professionals, scientists and research administrators met to discuss the challenges that research libraries are currently facing. After the meeting a survey was conducted to obtain ...
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil; Schenk, Ryan; Norton, Cathy N. (BioMed Central, 2008-05-13)
    Authority and year information have been attached to taxonomic names since Linnaean times. The systematic structure of taxonomic nomenclature facilitates the ability to develop tools that can be used to explore historical ...
  • Miller, Holly; Norton, Cathy N.; Sarkar, Indra Neil (BioMed Central, 2009-06-09)
    GenBank(R) is a public repository of all publicly available molecular sequence data from a range of sources. In addition to relevant metadata (e.g., sequence description, source organism and taxonomy), publication information ...
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil (2007-01)
    The exponentially growing array of biological data has necessitated the development of a new information management domain, biodiversity informatics. It is one of the newest members of the ‘informatics’ sub-disciplines, ...
  • Edgcomb, Virginia P.; Breglia, S. A.; Yubuki, Naoji; Beaudoin, David J.; Patterson, David J.; Leander, Brian S.; Bernhard, Joan M. (2010-06)
    A distinct subgroup of euglenozoans, referred to as the “Symbiontida,” has been described from oxygen-depleted and sulfidic marine environments. By definition, all members of this group carry epibionts that are intimately ...
  • Thessen, Anne E.; Bowers, H. A.; Stoecker, Diane K. (2009-01)
    Clonal cultures of plankton are widely used in laboratory experiments and have contributed greatly to knowledge of microbial systems. However, many physiological characteristics vary drastically between strains of the ...
  • Sarkar, Indra Neil; Schenk, Ryan; Miller, Holly; Norton, Cathy N. (American Medical Informatics Association, 2009-11-14)
    The identification of relevant literature from within large collections is often a challenging endeavor. In the context of indexed resources, such as MEDLINE, it has been shown that keywords from a controlled vocabulary ...
  • Wheeler, Q. D.; Knapp, Sandra; Stevenson, D. W.; Stevenson, J.; Blum, Stan D.; Boom, B.. M.; Borisy, Gary G.; Buizer, J. L.; De Carvalho, M. R.; Cibrian, A.; Donoghue, M.
