I see OMIM was proposed as a test case. I'm interested in this. I'm not  
entirely sure what it means to put OMIM disease descriptions into RDF  
though. One approach that springs to mind is simple binary mapping  
between OMIM IDs and, say, UMLS IDs. The question of whether RDF is  
used here seems moot.

An approach we're pursuing is decomposed descriptions of OMIM  
phenotypes, in terms of biological entities (continuants and  
occurrents) and the qualities which inhere in them; this could be done  
using ontologies such as the FMA and PATO (for qualities).

We're also interested in how these phenotypes relate to the disease,  
and the nature of the gene to phenotype relationship.

We'll be trying out various RDF storage solutions for this. We should  
have a demo running soon...
