Publication: Computing Identity Co-Reference Across Drug Discovery Datasets

This paper presents the rules used within the Open PHACTS (http://www.openphacts.org) Identity Management Service to compute co-reference chains across multiple datasets. The web of (linked) data has encouraged a proliferation of identifiers for the concepts captured in datasets; with each dataset using their own identifier. A key data integration challenge is linking the co-referent identifiers, Read more about Publication: Computing Identity Co-Reference Across Drug Discovery Datasets[…]

Publication: Nanopublications for exposing experimental data in the life-sciences: a Huntingtion’s Disease case study

Data from high throughput experiments often produce far more results than can ever appear in the main text or tables of a single research article. In these cases, the majority of new associations is often archived either as supplemental information in an arbitrary format or in publisher-independent databases that can be difficult to find. These Read more about Publication: Nanopublications for exposing experimental data in the life-sciences: a Huntingtion’s Disease case study[…]

Publication: Open PHACTS Explorer: Bringing the web to the semantic web

The Open PHACTS Explorer is a web application that supports drug discovery via the Open PHACTS API without requiring knowledge of SPARQL or the RDF data being searched. It provides a UI layer on top of the Open PHACTS linked data cache and also provides a javascript library to facilitate easy access to the Open Read more about Publication: Open PHACTS Explorer: Bringing the web to the semantic web[…]
