Health Care and Life Sciences Knowledge Base

We host parts of the W3C HCLS KB at the Freie Universität Berlin.

What is W3C HCLS ?

The W3C Health Care and Life Science Interest Group (W3C HCLS IG) is chartered to develop and support the use of Semantic Web technologies and practices to improve collaboration, research and development, and innovation adoption in the Health Care and Life Science domains. It is structured into six task-forces:
  1. BioRDF (Structured Data to RDF)
  2. Scientific Discourse
  3. Clinical Decision Support
  4. Clinical Observations Interoperability
  5. Linking Open Drug Data
  6. Terminology

Knowledge Bases

Following Knowledge Bases are currently imported in the Triplestore:


We use an AllegroGraph triplestore with an integrated Sesame SPARQL Endpoint.
