Publication: Scientific Lenses to Support Multiple Views over Linked Chemistry Data

When are two entries about a small molecule in different datasets the same? If they have the same drug name, chemical structure, or some other criteria? The choice depends upon the application to which the data will be put. However, existing Linked Data approaches provide a single global view over…

Publication: Querying neXtProt nanopublications and their value for insights on sequence variants and tissue expression

Understanding how genetic differences between individuals impact the regulation, expression, and ultimately function of proteins is an important step toward realizing the promise of personal medicine. There are several technical barriers hindering the transition of biological knowledge into the applications relevant to precision medicine. One important challenge for data integration…

Publication: Applying Linked Data Approaches to Pharmacology: Architectural Decisions and Implementation

The discovery of new medicines requires pharmacologists to interact with a number of information sources ranging from tabular data to scientific papers, and other specialized formats. In this application report, we describe a linked data platform for integrating multiple pharmacology datasets that form the basis for several drug discovery applications….

Publication: Nanopublication Guidelines

This document describes the structure of nanopublications and offers guidelines in their composition, implementation and use. It was produced by members of the Concept Web Alliance (CWA), an open collaborative community that is actively addressing the challenges associated with the production, management, interoperability and analysis of unprecedented volumes of data….

Publication: Incorporating private and commercial data into an open linked data platform for drug discovery

The Open PHACTS Discovery Platform aims to provide an integrated information space to advance pharmacological research in the area of drug discovery. Effective drug discovery requires comprehensive data coverage, i.e. integrating all available sources of pharmacology data. While many relevant data sources are available on the linked open data cloud,…

Conference: COLD 2013

COLD 2013, Fourth International Workshop on Consuming Linked Data, Sydney, Australia Alasdair Gray (Heriot-Watt University) gave a presentation: Including Co-referent URIs in a SPARQL Query, and a full paper with the same title was submitted

Publication: The Pharmacology Workspace: A Platform for Drug Discovery

We present the Open PHACTS linked data platform that is being developed to address a set of example drug discovery research questions and which supports several drug discovery applications. The platform retrieves data from many complementary, but overlapping, data sources to present an integrated view of the data. The platform…
