About Physiome Space

Return to Europe

B3C (http://www.b3c.it) today announces the release of an interactive digital library service, called PhysiomeSpace, designed to manage and share a large collection of heterogeneous biomedical data, such as medical imaging, motion capture, biomedical instrumentation signals, finite element models, etc. 

The digital library services are hosted on the Biomed Town community portal and can be accessed from www.physiomespace.com. PhysiomeSpace is currently a totally free service which offers up to 1GB of space: anyone interested in experimenting this innovative approach can register to the BiomedTown portal and use this service under the license agreement that can be found at http://www.physiomespace.com/public/TermsOfUse.

PhysiomeSpace is easy to use: just with a few clicks users can manage and curate the existing data resources, upload new ones and eventually share them with other users, following a simply permission system which ensure reliability and control.

PhysiomeSpace is also in the process to release the Living Human Digital Library b.

About PhysiomeSpace Service

The digital library service is managed using a client–server approach. The client application, called PSLoader© is used to import, fuse and enrich the data information according to the PhysiomeSpace resource ontology and but also to upload and download the resources to the library.

A search service capitalizes on the domain ontology and on the enrichment of metadata for each resource, providing a powerful discovery environment. The metadata are described in an extensible ontology composed of a master ontology and a series of sub-ontologies which can be added by the users’ communities, depending on their needs. If you wish to learn how to use the service you can download the PhysiomeSpace guide from http://www.physiomespace.com/wikis.

About LHDL project

The Living Human Digital Library (LHDL) research project (http://www.livinghuman.org, FP6-2004-ICT- 026932) was a STREP Project co-funded by the European Commission's as part of the 6th Framework Programme. The project, under the scientific coordination of the Istituto Ortopedico Rizzoli (IOR, Italy), run for three years from February 2006 to February 2009 and saw the participation of the University of Bedfordshire (U.K.), the Université Libre de Bruxelles (ULB, Belgium), the Open University (U.K.) and the CINECA supercomputing centre (Italy).

About LHDL collection

The collection, generated by researchers at ULB and IOR, is based on two female cadavers obtained from the ULB donation program, and on a group of body-matched volunteers recruited at IOR. The data collection included very different activities starting from the body level to scale down to organ, tissue, sub tissue and cell level. Full details on the LHDL Data collection can be found: http://www.biomedtown.org/biomed_town/LHDL/Reception/lhp-public-repository/public_D/plfng_view.
