I'm robert @Stevens, a bioinformatics lecturer at the University of 
Manchester. I have a special interst in bio-ontologies. Here at 
Manchester we are deep into use of semantic web technologies in the 
life science domain.  We also have a good blend of OWL users; 
language and reasoning expertise; and tool builders -- and we all 
feed off each other.
