A description is given of the application of cognitive graphing to the problem of representing the published findings of biomedical researchers as a single structured knowledge database. The author graph is a signed graph in which the vertices represent the latent concepts of the researcher, and the positively or negatively signed arcs represent the structural relations. The union of individual author graphs into a single composite graph, called the basic graph, cannot be used to represent scientific knowledge in a field, because of differences in detail and conceptualization. Only after transformation into a common framework of concepts can the pieces of scientific knowledge be integrated into an object graph, which can be analyzed to detect possible common causes or consequences of observed values.
