This page is where students and faculty can discuss projects
Please make comments on possible projects and we will add it to the list.
Students: Email Bob Belford ( firstname.lastname@example.org ) if after choosing a project you would like to team up with students from another school or a mentor. We will then assign one of the OLCC Project pages to you, and that will give you an opportunity to bring on board mentors and other students. Once you have an OLCC Project Page, you should subscribe to it.
Mentors:* If you would like to work with students, we can create a project page, and students can then join
Here are some possible suggestions, be sure to look at any group project pages below too. Please note that your final project topic needs the approval of your school's faciliator, and two students from the same school can not be in the same group project.
- Analysis of InChI strings for functional group identification*
- Annotation of Flow Analysis References with key concept metadata*
- Crosswalking the metadata of solubility data to a new scientific data model*
- Development of a website to semantically annotate data from the NIST Data Challenge*
- Tool to use Crossref data to show the ancestry of scientific publications*
- Development of a website to complete the NIST Webbook species list with CAS #'s
- Development of a website to view and search ONLY the spectra available on the ChemSpider website
- Retrieval of DOI's for references from the IUPAC solubility data series (x5)
- Metadata verification of solubility data in the IUPAC solubility data series (x5)
- Incorporation of PubChem LCSS into Electronic Laboratory Notebook
All students need to submit an abstract for their project to the ACS OLCC Cheminformatics Symposium in San Diego, even if you do not plan to go. Your facilitator will provide instructions. In late Novemember we will decide which projects will be presented and remove all submissions that will not be presented. This will not have a bearing on your grade (the meeting is 3 months after the course is over).
Project WebSites: Students from different schools can collaborate on projects and students can work with mentors. The following pages are to allow students and mentors the opportunity to communicate. Anyone who is interested in a specific project should subscribe to that project page. Students have the ability to edit and upload material to the project pages.
