The Neuroscience Information Framework (NIF) hosts Webinar series on topics focused on collaborating with NIF, getting involved in building the NIF vocabulary, using NIF portal resources, as well as other appropriate NIF topics.
The next NIF Webinar is scheduled for Tuesday, February 15, 2011. Please join David J. Hamilton from George Mason University as we explore the NRCI – Neuron Registry Curator Interface. The NRCI is a web-based tool that provides interactive capability for entry of neuron properties to describe neuron types. It is designed to be easily learned and efficiently used. Neuron property descriptors are entered in the form of part-relation-value triples, as in “dendrites (are) located in molecular layer” so as to facilitate machine readability. The NRCI is being interfaced with NIF and other neuroinformatic resources to foster collaborative use and cross-contributions. This effort is sponsored by the International Neuroinformatics Coordinating Facility (INCF) under the Program on Ontologies of Neural Structures (PONS).
