  • Online SPARQL Access to WikiPathways and AOP-Wiki Webinar

    23 March 2021

    Online SPARQL Access to WikiPathways and AOP-Wiki Webinar Linked data is basically structured data which is interlinked with other data so it becomes more useful through semantic queries. One way of doing this is through the integration of databases through RDF (Resource Description Framework, the standard model for data interchange) using the newly developed User Interfaces for WikiPathways and AOP-Wiki, providing a variety of useful features to facilitate exploring the databases and linking their data with other resources. The new features include a flexible, auto-populated query panel, SPARQL syntax highlighting, permalinks for SPARQL queries, and full-screen mode. The webinar will focus on the usability of the interface by walking through the various functionalities, and showing a variety of example queries against the WikiPathways and AOP-Wiki data. Furthermore, federated queries across resources will be executed to illustrate the strength of linked data. The webinar is for everyone who wants to learn how to use linked data resources such as WikiPathways and AOP-Wiki, and no preparations are necessary. The expected duration is 45 minutes with time for discussion and support with queries afterwards. 2021-03-23 15:00:00 UTC 2021-03-23 16:00:00 UTC register for online participation: register for online participation: [] EU H2020 mixed audience workshops_and_courses [] adverse outcome pathwaylinked datalife sciencesnanosafetynanoinformaticstoxicologyresource description frameworkSNORQL user interface
  • Nanosafety and the semantic web: from natural language to computational processing

    8 - 9 December 2021

    Nanosafety and the semantic web: from natural language to computational processing On Wednesday 8th & Thursday 9th December 2021, the NanoCommon team, in a joint initiative with the EU NanoSafety Cluster, will offer an online workshop/hackathon on “Nanosafety and the semantic web: from natural language to computational processing”. The web is a large interlinked resource of information, which is largely represented in natural language. One of the main goals of the semantic web is to convert this data into formats suitable for computational processing. Within the nanosafety projects that the Department of Bioinformatics at Maastricht University (BiGCaT) is involved in, we talk a lot about Semantic Approaches and terms like the Web Ontology Language (OWL), Resource Description Framework (RDF), SPARQL queries and SPARQL endpoints are used regularly by members of our team. We have given workshops/tutorials/worksessions in the past, but always with a focus on the knowledge needed for a specific task we were working on. This means that many of our project partners understand part of the picture. We are therefore organizing a workshop covering the whole range of Semantic Approaches that we use within the nanosafety-projects. Starting with more general questions like “what is a triple and what is the link with ontologies and RDF?” all the way to writing SPARQL queries and exploring their capabilities, which by the end of the workshop everyone will be able to do and possibly implement in their own work. We will practice using and extending the eNanoMapper ontology and we will look at the SPARQL endpoints, semantic web applications and tools developed and used by BiGCaT within these nanosafety projects. The workshop will be spread out over two afternoons on the Thursday December 8th & 9th from 13:00 till 17:00 h CET. The afternoons will be filled with a mixture of lectures, tutorials, hands-on and Q&A sessions. Expectation: Willing to learn new things and active participation in the interactive webinar. Feel free to join and please do not forget to register here: After registering, you will receive a confirmation email containing information about joining the workshop. Please, be aware that some personal information may be collected for statistical purposes, however, in a blinded and anonymous way. The workshop will be partially recorded for educational purposes. You will find updates with more information about NanoCommons and training materials here. Feel free to redistribute this information within your projects and networks. We are happy to have as many participants as possible and to help the community with the FAIRification of their data by offering insight into fully exploring and linking available data resources in a more straightforward way. The NanoCommons team will be happy to answer your questions and to guide you in your requests! 2021-12-08 13:00:00 UTC 2021-12-09 17:00:00 UTC Martin Himly, PLUS, Chair of EU NanoSafety Cluster WG-A Maastricht University NanocommonsNanoSolveIT mixed audience 80 workshops_and_courses [] data FAIRnessmetadata completenessscientific quality assurancelinked datalife sciences
