Identification of Phytotherapies

This project is establishing a first-of-its-kind computerized platform to identify and catalogue therapeutic uses of plants. Specifically, this project aims to develop a semantically integrated framework for identifying and validating potential phyto-therapies embedded within ethnobotanical and biomedical knowledge sources, and thus encourage the conservation of this knowledge and biodiversity.
