Hi Daniel,

Basically, aTags are a simple convention for representing statements 
annotated with entities from taxonomies and ontologies. The convention is 
based on the SIOC standard and linked data principles. Other 
assertion-centric formats (such as SWAN or the nano-publication format 
drafted by the Concept Web Alliance) can easily be mapped to aTags.

A paper describing aTags will soon appear in the Journal of Biomedical 
Semantics. You can get a preview at
http://www.jbiomedsem.com/content/pdf/2041-1480-1-s1-s5.pdf

An example of a collection of aTags created by manual curation can be found 
at:
http://hcls.deri.org/atag/data/tcm_atags.html

A collection of some existing datasets:
http://esw.w3.org/HCLSIG_BioRDF_Subgroup/aTags/datasets

A prototypical faceted browser for aggregated aTags (does not work in IE):
http://hcls.deri.org/atag/explorer/

The datasets can be queried with SPARQL at:
http://hcls.deri.org/sparql
(the graph names to be used in queries are documented at 
http://esw.w3.org/HCLSIG_BioRDF_Subgroup/DERI_HCLS_KB)

Cheers,
Matthias Samwald
