According these chines study, Web 3.0 could help in drug discovering.

Basicaly, the semantic web vision is to create a web of data by
interlinking, mapping and combining disparate data sources based on machine-understandable ontologies.

This data sharing especially could enable scientific networks and efficient retrievable systems.


The semantic web, developed on the web technology, provides a common, open framework capable of harmonizing diversified resources to enable networked and collaborative drug discovery.

Authors surveyed the state of art of utilizing web ontologies and other
semantic web technologies to interlink both data and people to support
integrated drug discovery across domains and multiple disciplines.

Particularly, the survey covers three major application categories including:

  1. semantic integration and open data linking;
  2. semantic web service and scientific collaboration and
  3. semantic data mining and integrative network analysis
