CEXS-UPF: The Integrative Biomedical Informatics announces a new release of DisGeNET


News from CEXS-UPF


The Integrative Biomedical Informatics (IBI) Group announces the second release of DisGeNET nanopublications that is a linked dataset implemented by combining the nanopublication approach and the Trusty Uniform Resource Identifiers (URIs) technique. In this new exciting Data Science era, nanopublications are an emerging approach of publishing structured data that allows the tracking of provenance along with the scientific statement. The Trusty URIs is a novel technique to make resources in the Web immutable and verifiable, and to ensure the unambiguity of the data linking in the Semantic Web.

In addition, the group has become a new node, and the first one in Spain, of the Nanopublication Network, which is a new decentralized server network to release and retrieve Linked Data as nanopublications in a reliable and trustworthy manner. This work has been done in collaboration with Tobias Kuhn from the University of Amsterdam, who is an expert in Semantic Web approaches. DisGeNET nanopublications are available in this new distributed nanopublication server network.
