Knowledge integration of software for HIV drug resistance research

AMIA Annu Symp Proc. 2007 Oct 11;973.


The Stanford HIVdb is implementing three applications to address the issue of HIV drug resistance. Knowledge integration of the applications is desirable. How best to integrate the software applications is the main question. We have pursued two possibilities for accomplishing knowledge integration. The most feasible method appears to use mapping ontologies. Future work is focused on defining a set of mapping relations to aid in the knowledge integration.
