__ DBpedia - OBO mapping __

I have created a script that generates a mapping between OBO ontologies and 
DBpedia, based on cross-references to Wikipedia contained in some OBO 
ontologies. This amounts to a meager ~430 mapping relations. Wikipedia 
references do not seem to be that popular in OBO ontologies after all.

Further information, script and mapping file are available at:

Further OBO - DBpedia mappings will be based on NLP.

__ Additions to HCLS knowledge base __

I have also added two new graphs to the DERI HCLS knowledge base. One 
contains the OBO-DBpedia mapping described above, the other contains the 
RDFa statements from the aTags pastebin, this graph is updated from the 
changing source document periodically.


The synchronisation with the aTags pastebin is accomplished with the crawler 
feature [1] of Virtuoso. It periodically visits the HTML page, reads the 
RDFa and updates the graph in the knowledge base. I guess we could extend 
the use of this feature to other datasets generated by HCLS IG participants 
and make updating the HCLS knowledge base more dynamic than it currently is.
