Data compression techniques have been widely used to process and transmit huge amount of EEG data in real-time and remote EEG signal processing systems. In this paper we propose a lossy compression technique, F-shift, to compress EEG signals for remote depth of Anaesthesia (DoA) monitoring. Compared with traditional wavelet compression techniques, our method not only preserves valuable clinical information with high compression ratios, but also reduces high frequency noises in EEG signals. Moreover, our method has negligible compression overheads (less than 0.1 seconds), which can greatly benefit real-time EEG signal monitoring systems. Our extensive experiments demonstrate the efficiency and effectiveness of the proposed compression method.
The recent publication of the human genome together with current research activities represent a huge and growing source of information which is voluminous, complex in structure, dispersed throughout different formats, and generally available over the internet. Access to information about the human genome will represent a habitual and routine practice for health professionals. This is why we suggest a new task for information professionals working in biomedical libraries: to facilitate information in this new domain. To make this possible, the Institute of Health ‘Carlos III’ through two of its units (The Medical Bioinformatics Department and the National Library of Health Sciences) proposed the BIB-GEN project. It consists of a number of activities that focus on education and specialised support for information professionals in this a...
INFOBIOMED is an European Network of Excellence (NoE) funded by the Information Society Directorate-General of the European Commission (EC). A consortium of European organizations from ten different countries is involved within the network. Four pilots, all related to linking clinical and genomic information, are being carried out. From an informatics perspective, various challenges, related to data integration and mining, are included.
abstractBackground: The SYMBIOmatics Specific Support Action (SSA) is "an information gathering and dissemination activity" that seeks "to identify synergies between the bioinformatics and the medical informatics" domain to improve collaborative progress between both domains (ref. to http://www.symbiomatics.org). As part of the project experts in both research fields will be identified and approached through a survey. To provide input to the survey, the scientific literature was analysed to extract topics relevant to both medical informatics and bioinformatics. Results: This paper presents results ofa systematic analysis of the scientific literature from medical informatics research and bioinformatics research. In the analysis pairs of words (bigrams) from the leading bioinformatics and medical informatics journals have been used as in...
Nanoinformatics has recently emerged to address the need of computing applications at the nano level. In this regard, the authors have participated in various initiatives to identify its concepts, foundations and challenges. While nanomaterials open up the possibility for developing new devices in many industrial and scientific areas, they also offer breakthrough perspectives for the prevention, diagnosis and treatment of diseases. In this paper, we analyze the different aspects of nanoinformatics and suggest five research topics to help catalyze new research and development in the area, particularly focused on nanomedicine. We also encompass the use of informatics to further the biological and clinical applications of basic research in nanoscience and nanotechnology, and the related concept of an extended ?nanotype? to coalesce inform...
