If it hasn't been done by the Bio2RDF or NeuroCommons folks, then one 
for you.

A quick way to determine if anything exists is to query the instance at: 
http://lod.openlinksw.com (which is a Virtuoso instance hosting 80% of 
the LOD cloud; actually most of the really large data sets are there 
already including LODD, Uniprot, Bio2RDF, NeuroCommons, etc..).

Just put in a text pattern, then use the "usage analysis" link to see 
details about cross linkage etc..

Now that the instance is reaching a point of stability, we can turn our 
attention to a VoiD graph that describes this huge Linked Data space.

Naturally, the SPARQL endpoint is at: http://lod.openlinksw.com/sparql  .
