Abstract: As research has become increasingly interdisciplinary, discovery of common research interests and complementary skills among potential collaborators across fields and institutions has become a priority. VIVO is a tool that facilitates this discovery process by offering detailed faculty profiles and revealing existing connections between researchers. Funded by the National Institutes of Health, VIVO is a semantic-web tool for faculty profiles, research discovery, and researcher networking being developed by the University of Florida and six partner institutions. Profiles include publication and grant information, research and teaching in¬terests, professional associations, and contact information; much of this data is ingested directly from authoritative data sources, such as institutional databases and publishers, requiring minimal effort on the part of researchers to fully populate the VIVO network. Although the VIVO platform is adopted and implemented at an institutional level, it is designed to optimize discovery both at local and national levels. By highlighting particular use case scenarios, we aim to introduce genetics researchers to the features and benefits of VIVO and encourage their use of this tool. In addition to demonstrating the potential of a fully-developed VIVO platform, we will address the functionalities of the existing product.
