Currently Active Research Projects
Projects I’m actively involved in now:
- Journal picks an experiment in annotating scientific literature based at the Wellcome Trust Genome Campus.
- Science blogging (here at O’Really?) is there a better way for scientists to communicate with each other and the wider world? I hope so.
- WikiScience: I’ve contributed to various articles on wikipedia as User:Duncan.Hull
Past Research Projects
Projects I’ve been involved in previously, these projects have either finished, or I no longer actively participate in:
- Research and development of the Chemical Entities of Biological Interest (ChEBI) ontology and database.
- The Refine project, integrating text-mining of literature with visualisation of metabolic maps, funded by BBSRC grant code BB/E004431/1
- Investigating using the semantic Web to help scientists find services on the web, the subject of my PhD: Semantic Matching of Bioinformatic Web Services and Shimmer project, funded by an EPSRC Doctoral Training Account (DTA)
- Taverna, part of the myGrid project, an e-science tool for building and running experiments on the Web. Funded by EPSRC GR/R67743/01 and EP/C536444/1
- myexperiment.org, a social networking site to allow Scientists to perform and share their experiments online, funded by the Joint Information Standards Committee (JISC) and the Engineering and Physical Sciences Research Council (EPSRC) grant codes: EP/D044324/1, EP/C536444/1, GR/R67743/01 and JISC Virtual Research Environment VRE2 (04/06)
- BioCatalogue project, jointly with the EBI: Building a service registry for use by scientists, primarly bioinformatics and cheminformatics, funded by the BBSRC (grant codes BB/F01046X/1 and BB/F010540/1)
- It all started a long long time ago in a galaxy far, far away. My first taste for research was a summer job investigating climate change in Abisko, Northern Sweden. See The regulation of Carbon Dioxide efflux from a sub-arctic heathland, funded by Natural Environmental Research Counci (NERC), grant code GST/02/531
Google Scholar has a fairly complete list of stuff I’ve published.
