Research Staff

Mike Bada, PhD

Biomedical Ontologist


Research Areas: Formal (especially ontology–based) representation of biological data and its applications. The integration and enrichment of existing biological ontologies by mining the component ontologies, generating assertions involving the ontological terms, and adding these assertions to the ontologies as links between terms. Also, the annotation of texts to serve as gold–standard corpora for biomedical text–mining, involving maintenance of the ontologies used, development of the annotation guidelines, and training of the annotators.
