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: 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,…

Publication: Open PHACTS: A semantic knowledge infrastructure for public and commercial drug discovery research

Technology advances in the last decade have led to a “digital revolution” in biomedical research. Much greater volumes of data can be generated in much less time, transforming the way researchers work. Yet, for those seeking to develop new drugs to treat human disease, the task of assembling a coherent…
