DisGenet RDF&SPARQL: how to use + modeling challenges

Upcoming PhD course on Semantic Web technologies offered by SIB in Geneva. We are pleased to announce that a lecture on DisGeNET-RDF developed in the IBI group is included in the course "Using the Semantic Web for faster (Bio-)Research", Geneva 30 November till 3 December 2015.

Accessing and using existing public data is a hassle, yet it is crucial for designing good experiments. This 4 day course, co-organized by SIB and CUSO/Staromics, will teach PhD students on how to use semantic web technologies for their own research.

It includes an in-depth exploration of Semantic Web concepts such as RDF (data modelling), SPARQL (asking questions on your data), OWL (reasoning for deducing new facts about your data)

The course will teach you how to use these technologies in your day to day research, as well as how you can share your data with the rest of the world.

Speaker: NĂºria Queralt Rosinach, IBI Group (GRIB)
