Indeed this would be an interesting set to rdf-ize. It might also be interesting based on the dataset complexity (i.e., moderate complexity) to see what practical stratgey for RDF conversion one would choose.

Perhaps a few folks could look at this data structure, consider some approaches (e.g., RDF-Schema only vs. a minimal ontology), and discuss this on the next BioRDF call?

At a talk I attended today, this resource of patient cancer diagnoses  
was mentioned as an example of publicly available clinical data. A  
quick look over the documentation suggests it might be an interesting  
project to produce an RDF version of the data set.

The SEER limited-use data* include SEER incidence and population data  
associated by age, sex, race, year of diagnosis, and geographic areas  
(including SEER registry and county)
