Publication: Scientific competency questions as the basis for semantically enriched open pharmacological space development

Molecular information systems play an important part in modern data-driven drug discovery. They do not only support decision making but also enable new discoveries via association and inference. In this review, we outline the scientific requirements identified by the Innovative Medicines Initiative (IMI) Open PHACTS consortium for the design of…

2nd Open PHACTS Community Workshop

Working with Open PHACTS (London, UK)

Publication: Toward interoperable bioscience data

To make full use of research data, the bioscience community needs to adopt technologies and reward mechanisms that support interoperability and promote the growth of an open ‘data commoning’ culture. Here we describe the prerequisites for data commoning and present an established and growing ecosystem of solutions using the shared…

Press Release: Semantic ‘lego’: an information framework to drive drug discovery

(PDF) Vienna, Austria – A new consortium of European organisations unite to support next generation drug discovery by providing a single view across data sources, bringing the semantic web to drug discovery. The Open PHACTS consortium, funded by the Innovative Medicines Initiative, will reduce the barriers to drug discovery by applying semantic…

Publication: Knowledge Driven Drug Discovery goes Semantic

While the availability of freely accessible information sources relevant to medicinal chemistry and drug discovery has grown over the past few years, the knowledge management challenges of this data have also grown enormously: how to get consistent answers, how to manage different interfaces, how to judge data quality, and how…
