The eagle-i network: making open science happen

eagle-i.net is a free application that makes it easy to discover biomedical research resources at a growing network of universities. The free software is an open source project, and we welcome institutions to adopt it and participate in this open network. The data in the system is also open access; anyone is welcome to search for resources, or to download the data.

The eagle-i technology

eagle-i is an ontology-driven, RDF-based software platform for creating, storing and searching semantically rich data about research resources of all kinds. eagle-i is built around semantic web technologies and adheres to linked open data principles. Interested in using the software or contributing to the project? Our developers wiki has all the technical details.

Collaborations

The Fred Hutchinson Cancer Research Center automated workflow tool pushes data from FHCRC’s Drupal-based resource sharing site to an eagle-i repository. The eagle-i team worked in tandem with Freelock and FHCR to build this open source Drupal connector. Read more.

In September 2012, the Web Portal team launched a new drupal-based website for the immunology community at Harvard. This community’s people and resources are spread across many centers and departments at Harvard and its academic health centers.   The Harvard Immunology website provides a window into this rich but disparate community, revealing the breadth and depth of their expertise. Its People & Labs tool expands upon Harvard Catalyst Profiles by providing a means for students and staff to add themselves to the community while faculty and fellows are automatically included. eagle-i integration provides a rich environment for finding and sharing resources.

eagle-i and the New York Stem Cell Foundation (NYSCF) Research Institute are collaborating to make iPS cells more visible and accessible to scientists working to understand and cure disease. NYSCF is a non-profit organization whose mission is to accelerate cures for the major diseases of our time through stem cell research. eagle-i powers the NYSCF stem cell search.

eagle-i collaborated with the VIVO team to align the VIVO and eagle-i resource ontologies into the Integrated Semantic Framework (or VIVO-ISF). This aligned ontology covers researcher interests, activities, and accomplishments, as well as the resource resources produced in their work. The two aligned ontologies under the VIVO-ISF provided the backbone for data integration between eagle-i and Profiles.
