Colleagues,

Today, we officially launched the EBI RDF Platform http://w.ww.ebi.ac.uk/rdf

The new platform, built in response to input from industry, provides 
access to bioinformatics resources that support Semantic Web 
technologies. EMBL-EBI hosts a comprehensive range of freely available 
molecular databases. Increasingly, these public resources are committing 
to providing and supporting RDF versions of their data. The RDF platform 
helps developers get to grips with the technology and the data, 
supporting further integration of applications. Over time, the goal is 
to create a seamless experience for scientists exploring the scientific 
literature and the data that supports it, spanning genes, expression, 
proteins, pathways, networks and many other types.

We welcome questions and feedback on the EBI RDF mailing list
