I am Talapady N Bhat a project leader for Bioinformatics at NIST. I am also 
the co-author of the paper describing the RCSB/PDB Web site
My recent interests include developing Chemical Semantics concepts and RDF 
for chemical structures. I have developed and deployed these concepts for 
two applications
1) Structural database for AIDS -a pre-clinical data resource for all 
classes of AIDS inhibitors 
 2) A ligand Gateway for all ligands in the PDB 
http://xpdb.nist.gov/pdb/chemblast.html This Web site serves as a gateway to 
query ligands in the RCSB/PDB

The Semantic Concepts that I am working on has two main features (a) use of 
InChI to represent a complete chemical structure with a rule based 
index -using InChI like many other similar efforts; (b) Develop and use of 
automated procedures to generate familiar scaffolds (sub-structures) of 
chemical compounds used in step (a) and then express their relationships as 
RDF for query in a user interface using image tiles. The advantage of this 
method is that it facilitates the display of all the available chemical 
scaffolds using image tiles and it allows their use for query without any 
molecular drawing tools. This method is expected also to provide a scaffold 
based method to link chemical data across the Web for SAR or 
substructure/similarity searching/linking.

Best regards,

T N Bhat

I'm Colin Batchelor and I'm team leader of the R & D team in the Informatics 
Department at the Royal Society of Chemistry.

My main interest representing chemical data, in whatever form, in a 
machine-readable way, and so far this has involved building the InChI 
identifier and Open Biomedical Ontologies into a journal publishing workflow 
(1), and outputting it all as RDF (2).  I'm also a member of the IUPAC InChI 
subcommittee, a maintainer of the Sequence Ontology and an active 
participant in the RNA Ontology Consortium.
