Scott: BioRDF has worked in a number areas: 1) knowledge base 2) query federation 3) expression data 4) Neurodegenerative disease 5) customized SPARQL views with SWObjects mapping between vocabularies
LODD has created linked data for a number of important HCLS data sources.
Scott: Combine BioRDF and LODD? Let's discuss possible new directions and see if any projects appeal to both BioRDF and LODD, or if there are clearly diverging interests.
... * Tools and approaches to create clean LODD for use in CDS
- Standard mappings to ontologies
- Data set description - refresh rate, license type
Michel: Would like to create interface that makes it possible to merge different sources into a view.
Scott: Semantic wiki and SPARQL query editor that uses autocompletion from indexes of federated query endpoints and named graphs.
<egonw> have people here seen distilbio ?
<egonw> what's the CTO name?
Michel: Interface doesn't have to be polished but just show that we can build an app that makes use of federation of linked data.
Scott: <describes dynamically-generated facetted browser>
Michel: There is a facetted browser for Linked Data from Ben Nowack, but it was commercial last year.

<egonw> note: I'm talking to Mike on a telcon tonight... and since we're doing more and more semweb, I doubt we'll not discuss RDF...
<egonw> if it comes up, I can discuss SPARQL versus API ...
<michael> * translating TCGA data into RDF (the kicker being the sample characteristics are in a different set of files than the MAGE-TAB) * demonstrating the usefulness in generating novel discoveries using the RDF representation of gene expression and next gen experiments * what does it mean to run an analysis in an RDF framework to generate new triples? (i.e. runn
<egonw> I'm sorry to have to leave...
<egonw> an augmented science database reality using RDF sounds cool
