Launch of the NBDC RDF portal website

The first portal website in Japan that aggregates various life science databases in RDF format has been launched by the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST), National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) and the Research Organization of Information and Systems (ROIS), Database Center for Life Science (DBCLS).
This portal site provides RDF datasets deposited by various research organizations, and allows the user to browse the description of those datasets, to download the data and to search the data using SPARQL (a standard query language for RDF data) queries.
