Integrating the UMLS into an RDF-Based Biomedical Knowledge Repository
As part of Advanced Library Services project at the National Library of Medicine, we are creating a very large Biomedical Knowledge Repository (BKR), which serves as background knowledge for applications including knowledge discovery and multidocument summarization. The BKR integrates relations extracted from the biomedical literature (e.g., Medline citations) and from structured knowledge sources (e.g., Entrez Gene). It will also host relations contributed by external collaborators.
