Towards Building a Semantic Repository of Bioinformatics Resources
Keywords:Digital Repository, Metadata, Ontology, Semantic Search, Knowledge Discovery, Bioinformatics
AbstractThe paper presents a work in progress directed to the creation of a semantic digital repository of scholarly resources in the area of bioinformatics. A special attention has been paid to the design of a lightweight subject ontology that will be used for automated conceptual annotation of the dynamically entering new materials and as a knowledge source for intelligent search over the repository. Some issues concerning the implementation of the repository and a suitable tool for search and document retrieval over its resources are discussed as well.
