Global Biotic Interactions: Taxon Graph

<p>Global Biotic Interactions: Taxon Cache and Taxon Map</p> <p>Global Biotic Interactions (GloBI) provides access to existing species interaction datasets (Poelen et al. 2014, http://globalbioticinteractions.org). As part of the dataset integration and aggregation, a best effort is made to resolve, match and link taxonomic names and associated vernacular/common names, hierarchies and thumbnails. </p> <p>The data archives included in this publication contain established taxonomic links (taxonMap.tsv.gz) and taxonomic information (taxonCache.tsv.gz) that GloBI retrieved and integrated from taxonomic name sources and web services associated with http://itis.gov, http://globalnames.org, http://eol.org and others open data services. </p> <p>While GloBI is not a naming authority and the primary goal of the name matching process is to detect incorrect or outdates names, the archives may serve as an example of how to publish denormalized taxonomic records and their interrelatioships in a pragmatic way.</p> <p>For related discussion threads, see https://github.com/jhpoelen/eol-globi-data/issues/145 , https://github.com/jhpoelen/eol-globi-data/issues/274 , https://github.com/jhpoelen/eol-globi-data/issues/70 , https://github.com/EOL/tramea/issues/10 and https://github.com/jhpoelen/eol-globi-data/issues/274 .</p> <p>Files<br>   <br>   README <br>       this file</p> <p>  taxonCache.tsv.gz <br>      Taxonomic name, ids, hierarchies, common names and thumbnail associated to taxa known to GloBI. <br>  <br>   taxonCache.tsv.gz.md5<br>      md5 hash of taxonCache.tsv.gz</p> <p>  taxonCacheFirst10.tsv<br>       Header and 10 following lines from taxonCache.tsv.gz.<br>  <br>   taxonMap.tsv.gz <br>       Links between taxon name and ids across various taxon providers. </p> <p>  taxonMap.tsv.gz.md5 <br>       md5 hash of taxonMap.tsv.gz.md5 </p> <p>  taxonMapFirst10.tsv<br>       Header and 10 following lines from taxonMap.tsv.gz.<br>  <br>   prefixes.tsv<br>       Term prefixes and their associated uri schemes. </p> <p>  names.tsv.gz<br>       Corpus of names used to resolve and link.

Only SAME_AS and SYNONYM_OF matches were used to generate new entries for taxonCache and taxonMap.</p> <p>4. in addition, elton v0.4.5 (see https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1212599 or https://github.com/globalbioticinteractions/elton/releases/tag/0.4.5) was used to generate an up-to-date names list by running the "update" and "names" commands on 18-19 May 2018. Of the resulting names, only id/names pairs that were unknown to the taxon graph were resolved using the "append globi-enrich" and "append globi-globalnames" commands of nomer v0.0.7. Only matches classified as SAME_AS and SYNONYM_OF were used to generate new entries for taxonCache and taxonMap.</p> <p>5. the updated versions of taxonMap.tsv.gz and taxonCache.tsv.gz were produced by appending result of 1., 2., 3. and 4. , removing duplicate lines and sorting the result. </p> <p>6. finally, the resulting taxonMap.tsv.gz. and taxonCache.tsv.gz files were validated using the nomer v0.0.7 validate-term-link and validate-term commands, respectively. The result indicated that all lines (other than the header) passed the validation tests.</p> <p>org.globalbioticinteractions.taxon v0.3.3, 2018-06-12</p> <p>This taxon archive version includes the following:</p> <p>1. normalizing taxonomic ranks using nomer's taxon rank matcher</p> <p>2. include more manual taxonomic name mappings provided by Brian Hayden and collaborators.</p> <p>3. update taxonCache and taxonMap using automated scripts available at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1286023 . </p> <p>4. remove mapping to NCBI taxa with name "Small" (and associated OTT).</p> <p><br> org.globalbioticinteractions.taxon v0.3.4, 2018-06-27</p> <p>1. update taxonCache and taxonMap using automated scripts available at https://doi.org/10.5281/zenodo.1286023</p> <p>Please note that nomer and elton rely on web accessible apis like taxonomy resolution services and data portals.
