Editorial: Semantic web for life sciences

Michael Schroeder, Eric Neumann

Abstract


Overall, this special issue shows that the life sciences can benefit from the semantic web. Data sources are available in RDF and OWL, infrastructure is in place to browse and reason with these new formats, and applications are being built, which benefit from a formal representation of the underlying data. These usecases are encouraging to move to the next step in which real, scalable semantic web applications for the life sciences are built.
