Will be interesting to brainstorm the potential use cases for which this data
may be useful.

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)
