Pharmas Nudge Semantic Web Technology Toward Practical Drug Discovery Applications | BioInform | Informatics | GenomeWeb

Slater and his colleagues developed a type-2 diabetes ontology as well as other ontologies to support the system. Basically it is a triple store, with OWL ontologies over that, Jena on top of that, and Web services cover all of it so we can make calls into the Web services and get our data back, he said. The stack has a visualization layer and a dashboard listing the knowledge bases within Pfizer, which lets users create their own knowledgebases pointed to their own ontologies.

Seems there are signs of life in the semantic HC web after all...
