Chem2Bio2RDF: a semantic resource for systems chemical biology and drug discovery

David Wild

Abstract:

This chapter describes an integrated semantic resource of drug discovery information called Chem2Bio2RDF. Heterogeneous public data sets pertaining to compounds, targets, genes, diseases, pathways and side effects were integrated into a single resource, which is freely available at chem2bio2rdf.org. A number of tools that use the data are described, along with the implementation challenges that derived from the project including details of where data is stored, how to organize it, and how to address data quality and equivalence.
