The representation of biomedical protocols

Larisa N. Soldatova, Ross D. King, Piyali S. Basu, Emma Haddi, Nigel Saunders


An explicit and logically consistent model for the representation of biomedical protocols would enable researchers in the Life Sciences to better record, execute, share, and report experimental procedures and results. The model we propose is based on the ontology of EXperimental ACTions (EXACT). The EXACT model is designed to define typical actions performed by biologists in labs and their essential attributes to enable recording of biomedical protocols in a computer processable form.

This oral communication aims to report on the recent progress with the EXACT-based representation of biomedical protocols.
