Helen,

As many of you know, NLM is developing a large repository of biomedical 
knowledge, extracted from the biomedical literature, terminological and 
knowledge bases, and contributed by outside collaborators. (The research 
presented by Satya Sahoo at the HCLS workshop at ISWC [and to the BioRDF 
group] on RDFizing Entrez Gene is part of this effort). Although the 
repository does not quite exist yet, you would be welcome to contribute 
your datasets to our repository. (Of course we would have to find common 
grounds on identifiers and metadata if your dataset is to be integrated 
with other knowledge sources).
You can find some more details on this project in a report we wrote a 
few months ago:
Bodenreider O, Rindflesch TC.
Advanced library services: Developing a biomedical knowledge repository 
to support advanced information management applications.
Technical report. Bethesda, Maryland: Lister Hill National Center for 
Biomedical Communications, National Library of Medicine; September 14, 2006.
http://mor.nlm.nih.gov/pubs/pdf/2006-ALS-BoSC.pdf
Feedback welcome as usual.

The invitation above should not prevent you from depositing your 
datasets on the NCBO BioPortal as suggested by Mark Musen. Presence on 
the BioPortal will ensure immediate diffusion and visibility, while 
integration into our biomedical knowledge repository will ensure 
interoperability with other knowledge sources.
