About this book

Offering a practical introduction for bioinformaticians, computational biologist, and other life scientists, Semantic Web for the Life Sciences explains the basic principles behind the semantic web and explains how to build data management, integration, and analysis solutions that can benefit from this framework. After an overview of basic concepts, the text discusses how to export information on the semantic web and how to use information that is available. It then presents relevant life sciences information resources that are available in the semantic web framework. The authors also include comprehensive, step-by-step examples throughout Semantic Web for the Life Sciences.
