The KnowledgeMap project: development of a concept-based medical school curriculum database

, : The KnowledgeMap project: development of a concept-based medical school curriculum database. AMIA ... Annual Symposium Proceedings. AMIA Symposium: 195-199

We developed the KnowledgeMap (KM) system as an online, concept-based database of medical school curriculum documents. It uses the KM concept indexer to map full-text documents and match search queries to concepts in the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS). In this paper, we describe the design of KM and report the first seven months of its implementation into a medical school. Despite being emphasized in only two first year courses and one fourth year course, students from all four classes used KM to search and browse documents. All faculty members involved with courses piloting KM used the system to upload and manage lecture documents. Currently, we are working with eight course directors to transition their courses to KM for next year.

Three genes cloned from Fundulus heteroclitus (killifish) define a new P450 subfamily, CYP2P. Structurally, the CYP2Ps are related to fish CYP2Ns and mammalian CYP2Js. CYP2P transcripts are expressed predominantly in liver and intestine. CYP2P3 co...
