Abstract

Biological experiments are published in a series of
online databases. Due to the inherent complexity
of these experiments, their conclusions can be contradictory. This causes the databases to be inconsistent, which creates problems for human users.
Previous work looked at creating a system based
on Argumentation to resolve this issue. This work
presents an evaluation of that system, focusing on
the effectiveness of its presentation of arguments
and the result of the argumentation process. The
work shows that the system can be understood by
users, even though their presentation preferences
vary substantially.
