In 1997 the our group decided to build a system – the first in the world – to access PubMed using MeSH terms in Spanish. Once the terms are specified in Spanish, they are automatically translated to English and the query is submitted via Web to the NLM server.
The Biomedical Informatics Group have used computational ontologies in many topics such as: ontology-based data integration, query homogenization, data cleaning and mining, clinical-genomic trials, information extraction and retrieval, text mining, building biomedical vocabulary servers, nanoinformatics research, or developing cancer ontologies. We have also introduced a new approach for building «morphospatial» and visual taxonomies of shapes, representing the kind of graphical, «visual» information that is inherent to the shapes of entities such as molecules, nanoparticles, organs, viruses, etc.
