Automating Gene Annotation Expression for Mouse Embryo

Presentation Type: 

It is of high biomedical interest to identify gene interactions and networks that are associated with developmental and physiological functions in the mouse embryo. There are now large datasets with both spatial and ontological annotation of the spatio-temporal patterns of gene-expression that provide a powerful resource to discover potential mechanisms of embryo organisation. Ontological annotation of gene expression consists of labelling images with terms from the anatomy ontology for mouse development. Current annotation is made manually by domain experts. It is both time consuming and costly. In this paper, we present a new data mining framework to automatically annotate gene expression patterns in images with anatomic terms. This framework integrates the images stored in le systems with ontology terms stored in databases, and combines pattern recognition with image processing techniques to identify the anatomical components that exhibit gene expression patterns in images. The experimental result shows the framework works well.
