Welcome to the SIFR project home page

The Semantic Indexing of French Biomedical Data Resources (SIFR) project proposes to investigate the scientific and technical challenges in building ontology-based services to leverage biomedical ontologies and terminologies in indexing, mining and retrieval of French biomedical data.   

We will build an ontology-based indexing workflow (i.e., French Annotator) similar to what exists for English resources but dedicated and specialized for French.

The SIFR project is mainly funded by the French ANR organization wityhin the Young Researcher (JCJC) program 2012.

The project is also supported by the CNRS and University Montpellier 2.
