Speech Title: Application of Linked Data in HBV Literature Database, HBV Protein Ontology and Knowledge Navigation

Abstract: With fast development of the researches on hepatitis B virus (HBV), a large number of the research achievements have been generated and scattered in various literatures. Information service providers are meeting the challenge of satisfying readers‘ needs for more efficient and intelligent retrieval. Data mining and information integration are basically the promising and effective ways which become more and more important. Based on previous research and planning, our study systematically sorted out and classified knowledge related to the viral protein of HBV and the HBV life history on the basis of collecting HBV- and HBV-related protein information of book, literature and virology dictionary. The HBV specific literature knowledge database and the HBV-related protein ontology were successfully constructed. In this study, the linked data technology was introduced for information integration and navigation. As you see, linked data is a structured data which is interlinked with other data so that become more useful through semantic queries. It builds upon standard Web technologies such as Http, RDF and URIs, but rather than using them to serve web pages only for human readers, it extends them to share information in a way that can be read automatically by computers. Part of the vision of linked data is for the internet to become a global database. With the support of computer programming and linked data, the design and application of the navigation system of hepatitis B virus (HBV) knowledge based on the HBV protein ontology was successfully finished.
