YeastHub: a semantic web use case for integrating data in the life sciences domain.


Bioinformatics (Oxford, England), Vol. 21 Suppl 1 (1 June 2005), doi:10.1093/bioinformatics/bti1026

As the semantic web technology is maturing and the need for life sciences data integration over the web is growing, it is important to explore how data integration needs can be addressed by the semantic web. The main problem that we face in data integration is a lack of widely-accepted standards for expressing the syntax and semantics of the data. We address this problem by exploring the use of semantic web technologies-including resource description framework (RDF), RDF site summary (RSS), relational-database-to-RDF mapping (D2RQ) and native RDF data repository-to represent, store and query both metadata and data across life sciences datasets. As many biological datasets are presently available in tabular format, we introduce an RDF structure into which they can be converted. Also, we develop a prototype web-based application called YeastHub that demonstrates how a life sciences data warehouse can be built using a native RDF data store (Sesame). This data warehouse allows integration of different types of yeast genome data provided by different resources in different formats including the tabular and RDF formats. Once the data are loaded into the data warehouse, RDF-based queries can be formulated to retrieve and query the data in an integrated fashion. The YeastHub website is accessible via the following URL:

The Internet Revolution: The Not-for-Dummies Guide to the History, Technology, and Use of the Internet


(01 June 2005)

The Internet Revolution presents the complete history of the Internet - from its original design and engineering to its initial form as the world's first packet-switched computer network (the ARPANET) to its transformation into a privatized, commercial network and its emergence as today's international networking infrastructure. This book also presents a detailed explanation of how the Internet's technology works, why it works so well, how it is being used, and how it is managed. It also answers the question of why the Internet succeeded in bringing computer networking into the lives of so many people across the globe.

Ambient Findability: What We Find Changes Who We Become


(06 September 2005)How do you find your way in an age of information overload? How can you filter streams of complex information to pull out only what you want? Why does it matter how information is structured when Google seems to magically bring up the right answer to your questions? What does it mean to be "findable" in this day and age? This eye-opening new book examines the convergence of information and connectivity. Written by Peter Morville, author of the groundbreaking Information Architecture for the World Wide Web, the book defines our current age as a state of unlimited findability. In other words, anyone can find anything at any time. Complete navigability.

Morville discusses the Internet, GIS, and other network technologies that are coming together to make unlimited findability possible. He explores how the melding of these innovations impacts society, since Web access is now a standard requirement for successful people and businesses. But before he does that, Morville looks back at the history of wayfinding and human evolution, suggesting that our fear of being lost has driven us to create maps, charts, and now, the mobile Internet.

The book's central thesis is that information literacy, information architecture, and usability are all critical components of this new world order. Hand in hand with that is the contention that only by planning and designing the best possible software, devices, and Internet, will we be able to maintain this connectivity in the future. Morville's book is highlighted with full color illustrations and rich examples that bring his prose to life.

Ambient Findability doesn't preach or pretend to know all the answers. Instead, it presents research, stories, and examples in support of its novel ideas. Are we truly at a critical point in our evolution where the quality of our digital networks will dictate how we behave as a species? Is findability indeed the primary key to a successful global marketplace in the 21st century and beyond. Peter Morville takes you on a thought-provoking tour of these memes and more -- ideas that will not only fascinate but will stir your creativity in practical ways that you can apply to your work immediately.

"A lively, enjoyable and informative tour of a topic that's only going to become more important."
--David Weinberger, Author, Small Pieces Loosely Joined and The Cluetrain Manifesto

"I envy the young scholar who finds this inventive book, by whatever strange means are necessary. The future isn't just unwritten--it's unsearched."
--Bruce Sterling, Writer, Futurist, and Co-Founder, The Electronic Frontier Foundation

"Search engine marketing is the hottest thing in Internet business, and deservedly so. Ambient Findability puts SEM into a broader context and provides deeper insights into human behavior. This book will help you grow your online business in a world where being found is not at all certain."
--Jakob Nielsen, Ph.D., Author, Designing Web Usability: The Practice of Simplicity

"Information that's hard to find will remain information that's hardly found--from one of the fathers of the discipline of information architecture, and one of its most experienced practitioners, come penetrating observations on why findability is elusive and how the act of seeking changes us."
--Steve Papa, Founder and Chairman, Endeca

"Whether it's a fact or a figure, a person or a place, Peter Morville knows how to make it findabl[...]

XML, RDF, and relatives


Intelligent Systems, IEEE [see also IEEE Intelligent Systems and Their Applications], Vol. 16, No. 2. (2001), pp. 26-28, doi:10.1109/5254.920596

Languages for representing data and knowledge are an important aspect of the Semantic Web, and there are a lot of languages around! Most languages are based on XML (eXtensible Markup Language) or use XML as syntax; some have connections to RDF (Resource Description Framework) or RDF schemas. This tutorial briefly introduces XML, XML schemas, RDF and RDF schemas.

Practical RDF


(01 August 2003)

Practical RDF explains RDF from the ground up, providing real-world examples and descriptions of how the technology is being used in applications like Mozilla, FOAF, and Chandler, as well as infrastructure you can use to build your own applications. This book cuts to the heart of the W3C's often obscure specifications, giving you tools to apply RDF successfully in your own projects. The first part of the book focuses on the RDF specifications. After an introduction to RDF, the book covers the RDF specification documents themselves, including RDF Semantics and Concepts and Abstract Model specifications, RDF constructs, and the RDF Schema. The second section focuses on programming language support, and the tools and utilities that allow developers to review, edit, parse, store, and manipulate RDF/XML. Subsequent sections focus on RDF's data roots, programming and framework support, and practical implementation and use of RDF and RDF/XML. If you want to know how to apply RDF to information processing, Practical RDF is for you. Whether your interests lie in large-scale information aggregation and analysis or in smaller-scale projects like weblog syndication, this book will provide you with a solid foundation for working with RDF.

Understanding Metadata



Beginning RSS and Atom Programming


(25 April 2005)

RSS and Atom are specifications that give users the power to subscribe to information they want to receive and give content developers tools to provide continuous subscriptions to willing recipients in a spam-free setting. RSS and Atom are the technical power behind the growing millions of blogs on the Web. Blogs change the Web from a set of static pages or sites requiring programming expertise to update to an ever changing, constantly updated landscape that anyone can contribute to. RSS and Atom syndication provides users an easy way to track new information on as many Web sites as they want. This book offers you insight to understanding the issues facing the user community so you can meet users' needs by writing software and Web sites using RSS and Atom feeds.

Beginning with an introduction to all the current and coming versions of RSS and Atom, you'll go step by step through the process of producing, aggregating, and storing information feeds. When you're finished, you'll be able to produce client software and Web sites that create, manipulate, aggregate, and display information feeds effectively.

"This book is full of practical advice and tips for consuming, producing, and manipulating information feeds. I only wish I had a book like this when I started writing RSS Bandit." - Dare Obasanjo, RSS Bandit creator: RSS, RDF, Atom, and Dublin Core are all types of information-feed specifications that deliver Web content to aggregators for other sites to index and help feed-reader applications track frequent site posts Google tracks 1.4 million RSS feeds, and there are approximately 250,000 additional feeds powered by Atom, a newer protocol Features numerous hands-on ""hacks"" that help developers make the most of the information feed protocols

Haystack: A Customizable General-Purpose Information Management Tool for End Users of Semistructured Data


Proceedings of the 2003 CIDR Conference (2005)

We posit that a semistructured data model offers the right balance of rich structure and flexible (or lack of) schema allowing naive end users to record information in whatever form makes it easy for them to manage. We describe our Haystack system, which exposes the richness and flexibility of the data model while offering the user natural, traditional interfaces that shield them from the specifics of schemas, tuples, and database queries. We outline research challenges that remain to be addressed.
