AIC Seminar Series
Finding Answers and Generating Explanations for Complex Biomedical Queries

Location: EJ228 (SRI E building) (Directions)
We present new methods to efficiently answer complex queries over
biomedical ontologies and databases considering the relevant parts
of these knowledge resources, and to generate shortest explanations
to justify these answers. Both algorithms rely on the high-level
representation and efficient solvers of Answer Set Programming. We
apply these algorithms to find answers and explanations to some
complex queries related to drug discovery, over PHARMGKB, DRUGBANK,
BIOGRID, CTD and SIDER.
This is joint work with Yelda Erdem (Sanovel Pharmaceutical Inc.),
and Halit Erdogan and Umut Oztok (Sabanci University).
Esra Erdem received her Ph.D. in Computer Sciences at the
University of Texas at Austin in 2002. She was a post-doctoral
fellow in the Cognitive Robotics Group at the University of Toronto
(20022003), and a research scientist in the Knowledge Based Systems
Group at Vienna University of Technology (20032006). Since
September 2006, she has been an assistant professor at Sabanci
