Representing Biological Responses to Chemical Exposures using the Claim Framework

The quantity of information in science continues to increase at an alarming rate. The goal of our research group is to develop tools that automatically extract and synthesize evidence from published literature so that both individuals and policy makers can base their decisions on the latest available scientific evidence. To that end, we have developed the Claim Framework. The Claim Framework comprises four information facets that are pieced together to form five different claim types. This presentation will draw from a wide array of study designs used in medicine, toxicology and epidemiology to demonstrate how the claim framework will enable information to be automatically synthesized.
