    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.

L.; Wilson, E. O.; Woolley, J. B. (Taylor & Francis, 2012-03-27)
    The time is ripe for a comprehensive mission to explore and document Earth's species. This calls for a campaign to educate and inspire the next generation of professional and citizen species explorers, investments in ...
  • Yamashita, Grant; Miller, Holly; Goddard, Anthony; Norton, Cathy N. (2010-08-04)
    Many areas of science such as biology, medicine, and oceanography are becoming increasingly data-rich and most programs that train scientists do not address informatics techniques or technologies that are necessary for ...
  • Patterson, David J.; Cooper, J.; Kirk, Paul M.; Pyle, R. L.; Remsen, David P. (2010-09-20)
    Those who seek answers to big, broad questions about biology, especially questions emphasizing the organism (taxonomy, evolution, ecology), will soon benefit from an emerging names-based infrastructure. It will draw on ...
  • Akella, Lakshmi Manohar; Norton, Cathy N.; Miller, Holly (BioMed Central, 2012-08-22)
    A scientific name for an organism can be associated with almost all biological data. Name identification is an important step in many text mining tasks aiming to extract useful information from biological, biomedical and ...
  • Trainer, Vera L.; Bates, Stephen S.; Lundholm, Nina; Thessen, Anne E.; Cochlan, William P.; Adams, Nicolaus G.; Trick, Charles G. (Elsevier B.V., 2011-11-03)
    Over the last decade, our understanding of the environmental controls on Pseudo-nitzschia blooms and domoic acid (DA) production has matured. Pseudo-nitzschia have been found along most of the world's coastlines, while the ...
