Hi Everybody

I just added a new our RNA sub-use case.

http://www.w3.org/2001/sw/rdb2rdf/wiki/Use_Cases_and_Requirements#Use_Case:_Expose_Mapping_a_Relational_Database_to_an_OWL_DL_ontology

The biologist that we are working with are interested in exposing their data
as RDF because they want to become a hub in the Linked Data cloud. There is
a huge effort from the biology community to create ontologies, however most
of these are in OBO. There is already a correct way of translating OBO
ontologies to OWL DL ontologies. So the use case is about mapping a
relational database to an OWL DL ontology. The intention of most of these
OBO ontologies are for standardized use and data integration.
