Francisco M. Couto’s tutorial at WWW ’21

Date: 12/04/2021

Francisco M. Couto presents today the tutorial “Exploring Biomedical Web Resources using Shell Scripting” at the 30th The Web Conference (WWW ’21).

The tutorial follows an example of the manual steps that Health and Life specialists may have to perform to find and retrieve biomedical text about caffeine using publicly available web resources. The participants will learn how to use command-line tools to automatize those steps, including the automatic download of data, extracting useful information from the text retrieved, and how to explore the semantics encoded in biomedical ontologies and how they address the issue of ambiguity of natural language and contextualization of biomedical entities.
