Tuberculosis Sample Study
November 23, 2016
28,000 tuberculosis (TB) sample entries were extracted from the NCBI Database in order to better understand the wide array of descriptors entered at the time these samples were uploaded. A custom frequency-based word cloud was created from all 322 descriptors to highlight the difficulty in standardizing the samples in a meaningful way. This word cloud was used in the design of the academic poster: Creating a Standardized Genomic Epidemiology Ontology for Tuberculosis in Canada: Challenges and Opportunities.
