Kno.e.sis Center, Wright State University

Principal Investigator:

  • Amit Sheth -- Dr. Amit Sheth is the LexisNexis Ohio Eminent Scholar and a Director of the Kno.e.sis center at Wright State University. He is the Principal Investigator (PI) of this project.


  • Priti Parikh-- Priti is a Postdoctoral Research Fellow at the Kno.e.Sis Center with Biological Science expertise. Priti helps with development and extension of ontologies, and a query processing tool, Cuebee.


  • Mary Panahiazar--Led the project 2011-2012
  • Satya Sahoo -- led the creation of the two ontologies used in this project namely, Parasite Experiment ontology, Parasite Experiment ontology in collaboration the biology domain experts. Also created the Provenir upper-level provenance ontology that has been extended to create the Parasite Experiment ontology.
  • Vinh Nguyen -- used Parasite Experiment ontology to convert the experimental data in relational DB and CSV to RDF format and ran biological queries.
  • Ajith Ranabahu
  • Pablo Mendes -- created the concept and developed Cuebee, a system for knowledge driven query formulation. Also collaborated with Dr. Davila and Rodrigo Jardim towards integrating genomic databases and other knowledge sources, as well as for the execution of complex queries involving rules.
Tarleton Research Group, Center for Tropical and Emerging Global Diseases(CTEGD), University of Georgia
  • Rick Tarleton-- Dr. Rick Tarleton is a Distinguished Research Professor in the Department of Cellular Biology at UGA. He is also a Co-PI of this project.
  • Todd Minning -- Todd is an Assitant Research Scientist at the Tarleton Research Lab. He is involved in sharing lab data and evaluation of Cuebee as per the lab requirements.
Intelligent Thought and Action Lab (THINC) Lab at the University of Georgia
  • Prashant Doshi-- Dr. Prashant Doshi is an associate professor of Computer Science at UGA and director of the THINC lab. He is a Co-Investigator in this project.
  • Amir Asiaee -- Amir is a doctoral student in the Computer Science department of UGA and a graduate research assistant in this project.

Amir and Prashant are involved in the research and development of Cuebee, which is a system for querying biological data semantically.

The Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute, UK
  • Flora Logan-Klumpler -- Flora is a Postdoctoral Researcher at the Wellcome Trust Sanger Institute and the University of Cambridge, UK. She collaborates with the Kno.e.sis team on extending both the PLO and the PEO with other human parasites, such as Plasmodium sp. Previously Flora worked as a Postdoc at the Tarleton Research Lab where she was primarily involved in the development of both these ontologies.
