Task

Task Objectives

  1. Use Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies to facilitate drug discovery from nature, based on ethnopharmacological data.
  2. Create a list of plant species, likely active ingredients and their evidence for efficacy and safety for certain indications.
  3. Problem-driven research: Use Semantic Web and Linked Data technologies where possible, but do not use this technology as an end in itself. Document where current SW/LD technologies fail to address certain problems. Try to fix these problems by creating new RDF/OWL datasets and tools.
