Grants and Contracts Details


To help oncology researchers to better access data in the Kentucky Cancer Registry, we propose to develop an ontology-driven faceted query engine called OncoSphere for exploring large-scale integrated cancer data repositories. OncoSphere will use a NoSQL database and dynamically render its user interface for concept-based querying tasks. OncoSphere will provide an interactive querybuilding interface together with query translation and optimization strategies, which will enable users to build and execute queries effectively and efficiently.
