Scientific Questions Being Studied

Hypothesis: Creating and visualizing a graph data structure (a specific type of structure to organize data that contains information about the relationships between data as well as characteristics or attributes of the data), will help participants and researchers understand and discover connections with the data.

Project Purpose(s)

  • Disease Focused Research (diabetes mellitus)
  • Educational

Scientific Approaches

Methods:
- Create data structures (ontologies) from All of Us data that contain the properties and relations between the data.
- Visualize this structured data with circles for concepts or entities and lines connecting these entities to represent relationships between them. The lines (relationships) will have labels describing what kind of relation the entities have.
- Tools to create these data structures include:
- Programming languages: Python3
- Python libraries: Pandas, rdflib, matplotlib, seaborn
- Semantic technology: RDF, SPARQL
- Linked Open Data: DBpedia, Ontology for General Medical Science, CIDO: Ontology of Coronavirus Infectious Disease

Anticipated Findings

Anticipated findings:
- That visualizing participant data with this graph structure will help both participants and researchers to gain understanding of the disease as well as help to discover connections between the data that otherwise would be invisible using other forms of data visualization.
