Does web 3.0 help drug dicovery?

leave a comment »

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

Scientists & Internet

leave a comment »

it’s not without some irony that the brain child of scientists – the internet – is now developing at such a rate, that we hopelessly outpaced scientists feel the urge to plead to a private company to not abandon us poor scientists. (…) Embarrassingly, I would posit that most of today’s scientists use the internet for science at roughly the level of 1994: Browsing and e-mail. However, this should not keep us from joining the evolution of Web 3.0 and help develop Science 2.0...”

Will science ride the Google Wave into the 21st century?,
