Project Description

Harvey Mudd College Computer Science Clinic is a program that brings together students with academic or industry sponsors. Our work with the 2021/22 Harvey Mudd CS Clinic team involves research and development of methods and software to facilitate the mapping of free-text biomedical concepts to ontology terms. We are developing a tool that relies on NLP techniques, ontology semantics and automated reasoning to semi-automatically map concepts in bulk. The tool will include rich user interfaces to support user interaction, with the goal of being deployed and used by scientists in data normalization/curation workflows.
