We will update this page with the latest projects coming out of RENCI as our researchers and their partners work together to develop novel approaches for dealing with COVID-19.
The APOGEE (mAss-PrOduced Gravity drivE vEntilator) prototype design will cost no more than $1,000 to produce and requires only a source of 12V power, compressed air, compressed oxygen, and tap water to function. These features make the device highly reproducible and mobile.
Answering Biomedical Questions
RENCI scientists are supporting rapid exploration of data by building a COVID-19 version of their question-answering system called Reasoning Over Biomedical Objects linked in Knowledge Oriented Pathways, or ROBOKOP.
As the COVID-19 pandemic progressed, researchers around the world began conducting analyses and visualization on an increasingly varied set of COVID-19 data. To facilitate analytics related to COVID-19, RENCI scientists developed the Blackbalsam digital data science laboratory, a readily available suite of tools and COVID-19 data housed in a common digital environment.
Literature Co-Occurrence Knowledge Graphs
RENCI researchers have developed literature co-occurrence databases on COVID-19 based on the Semantic Scholar Open Research Dataset (CORD 19), a set of research papers covering COVID-19 and earlier coronaviruses.
