Chem2Bio2RDF: A Linked Open Data Portal for Chemical Biology

12/2010;
Source: arXiv

ABSTRACT The Chem2Bio2RDF portal is a Linked Open Data (LOD) portal for systems chemical biology aiming for facilitating drug discovery. It converts around 25 different datasets on genes, compounds, drugs, pathways, side effects, diseases, and MEDLINE/PubMed documents into RDF triples and links them to other LOD bubbles, such as Bio2RDF, LODD and DBPedia. The portal is based on D2R server and provides a SPARQL endpoint, but adds on few unique features like RDF faceted browser, user-friendly SPARQL query generator, MEDLINE/PubMed cross validation service, and Cytoscape visualization plugin. Three use cases demonstrate the functionality and usability of this portal. Comment: 8 pages, 10 figures

    ABSTRACT: Chemoinformatics has evolved by the marriage of two branches of sciences namely, chemistry and information technology. In this paper, neural network trained by evolutionary algorithm is used as a classifier for the classification of Chemoinformatics data sets. The results of evolutionary neural network classifier are promising.

    ABSTRACT: SUMMARY Visualization of large-scale high dimensional data is highly valuable for data analysis facilitating scientific discovery in many fields. We present PubChemBrowse, a customized visualization tool for cheminformatics research. It provides a novel 3D data point browser that displays complex properties of massive data on commodity clients. As in Geographic Information System browsers for Earth and Environment data, chemical compounds with similar properties are nearby in the browser. PubChemBrowse is built around in-house high performance parallel Multi-dimensional scaling and Generative topographic mapping services and supports fast interaction with an external property database. These properties can be overlaid on 3D mapped compound space or queried for individual points. We prototype the integration with Chem2Bio2RDF system using SPARQL endpoint to access over 20 publicly accessible bioinformatics databases. We describe our design and implementation of the integrated PubChemBrowse application and outline its use in drug discovery. The same core technologies are generally applicable to develop high performance scientific data browsing systems for other applications. Copyright © 2011 John Wiley & Sons, Ltd.

    ABSTRACT: Visualization of large-scale high dimensional data tool is highly valuable for scientific discovery in many fields. We present PubChemBrowse, a customized visualization tool for cheminformatics research. It provides a novel 3D data point browser that displays complex properties of massive data on commodity clients. As in GIS browsers for Earth and Envi- ronment data, chemical compounds with similar properties are nearby in the browser. PubChemBrowse is built around in-house high performance parallel MDS (Multi-Dimensional Scaling) and GTM (Generative Topographic Mapping) ser- vices and supports fast interaction with an external property database. These properties can be overlaid on 3D mapped compound space or queried for individual points. We proto- type use with Chem2Bio2RDF system using SPARQL query language to access over 20 publicly accessible bioinformatics databases. We describe our design and implementation of the integrated PubChemBrowse application and outline its use in drug discovery. The same core technologies can be used to develop similar high dimensional browsers in other scientific areas.
