Provenance Management in Parasite Research

Document Type



The objective of this research is to create a semantic problem solving environment (PSE) for human parasite Trypanosoma cruzi. As a part of the PSE, we are trying to manage provenance of the experiment data as it is generated. It requires to capture the provenance which is often collected through web forms used by biologists to input the information about experiments they conduct. We have created Parasite Experiment Ontology (PEO) that represents provenance information used in the project. We have modified the back end which processes the data gathered from biologists, generates RDF triples and serializes them into the triple store. Moreover, it is necessary to assert that RDF triples conform to the PEO schema. This work allows us to capture provenance of experiments conducted at Tarleton Research Group as a part of this project.
