I am not sure that I know of an article on exactly what you are looking for. However, I thought you may be interested in looking into one of our recent articles in BMC Bioinformatics and also at some of the references available within it.
This article's focus is especially on enabling computational cell biology through shared federated data resources envisaged by Semantic Web community.
I am also enclosing a preprint which can also be downloaded from the Biomedcentral site given below.

For any additional questions you may also contact the authors listed in the publication.

With regards,

Subject: Evidence of Significance of Semantic Web for Life Sciences


  I am looking for evidence I can quote to convince non-experts of the significance of applying Semantic Web to biomedical research, especially computational cell biology.

  I need a recorded public statement from a source recognizable as authoritative to a non-expert: e.g. could be from a relevant government agency, a well-known research institution (including major grad schools and companies), a well-known (i.e. well-known outside the
field) expert, some one where a brief look at the biography immediately suggests he or she is an authority, some one quoted in major media, etc.

  Significance could mean abstract things like advancing science and health care, but even better would be tangible things like: saves lives, saves money, cures cancer/malaria/AIDS, creates jobs, etc.

  Thanks a lot!

     Take care
