ELTerm: a terminology module for a plant data management system

Abstract : IRHS is a French plant research laboratory. Its BIDefI (for BIoinformatics plant Defense Investi- gations) team develops methods and tools to help other teams manage and analyse their datasets: — Development of a data management system which links research projects, experiments and the biological material being used (along with its characteristics) and produced results, — Development of various data analysis tools and in particular tools aiming at meta-analysis In order to perform meta-analyses, it is mandatory to use a unified vocabulary across experiments to describe the datasets, that is to say use shared terminologies to fill in meta-data fields. The data management system consists of a data management layer, named ELVIS (for Experiment and Laboratory on Vegetal Information System), and graphical interfaces, called PREMS (for Plant Ressource Management System) [1]. Both layers include a terminology module which contents are used to describe data in other modules. This module allows to store several terminologies related to various topics: organism taxonomy, experimental conditions (in particular stresses), plant development stages, plant anatomy, etc. The general underlying principal is similar to standard terminologies representations such as TermBase Exchange [2]. The objective is to both keep the representation simple without going into more complex representation such as those used in ontologies by knowledge management engineers while still being expressive enough to suit our needs.
