hi david and matthais,

"(for example, the original idea of BioRDF was mainly to convert biomedical
data to RDF, but over the years this also became a major focus of other task
forces such as LODD)"

along david's point, i would argue that because the problem the two groups
are trying to solve, BioRDF looking at particular Biotechnologies that
aren't currently in RDF and LODD which is interested in linking data, the
overlap is not significant and can be avoided.  once BioRDF shows how to
represent gene expression experiments as RDF triples, then LODD can think
about making the experiments in ArrayExpress available as Linked Data.

cheers,
michael
