Semantics

Watch our time capsule video to learn about the current status of the field and new technologies that are sure to be important as we embark on the next era of cancer data research.

This blog offers a primer on semantics, a topic that has broad implications for the biomedical informatics and data science fields. Here, Gilberto Fragoso, Ph.D., describes the structures that serve as a foundation for data science semantics. Those systems help improve data interoperability, allowing researchers to query, retrieve, and combine very different data sets for more extensive analysis.
