Semantic BioWeb

A Semantic Web For Biodiversity Informatics "The Semantic Web extends the existing World Wide Web by structuring and linking information so as to be understandable by machines as well as by humans, facilitating search and discovery. This seminar will explore its potential for biodiversity informatics, drawing upon an NSF-funded informatics project which is using the field of invasive species information management as a testbed. Focal areas of this project include developing ontologies to formally describe the relationship between elements of biological information sets and developing networked species distribution models."
