     Hello All,

  I just joined the SWHCLSIG and thought I introduce myself:

  I work for the Virtual Cell [1] at the Center for Cell Analysis and
Modeling [2] at the University of Connecticut Health Center [3].

  My current project [4] aims to integrate formats for molecular
pathways, especially BioPAX [5] and SBML [6], aiming to include other
formats in the future. For this project, we have developed a Java
application called Systems Biology Linker (Sybil), which makes
extensive use of Semantic Web technologies (including querying,
reasoning and program-based ontology-building) with the help of Jena
[7] and an ontology we developed called Systems Biology Pathway
Exchange (SBPAX).

  I am also facilitating the bi-weekly meetings of the BioPAX-OBO
group [8], which aims to integrate BioPAX into the OBO Foundry [9], a
task that requires an extensive revision of BioPAX.

  I am looking forward to working with others on the greater goal of
integrating biomedical knowledge using Semantic Web technologies.

     Take care
