An Intelligent SPARQL Query Builder for Exploration of Various Life-science Databases

Atsuko Yamaguchi, Kouji Kozaki, Kai Lenz, Hongyan Wu, Norio Kobayashi
2014 International Semantic Web Conference  
Database integration of a wide variety of life-science data is an important issue for comprehensive data analysis.  ...  To overcome this problem, we propose an intelligent SPARQL query builder that aids users with no knowledge on SPARQL in building queries.  ...  This work was supported by JSPS KAKENHI Grant Number 25280081 and the National Bioscience Database Center (NBDC) of the Japan Science and Technology Agency (JST).  ...

Leveraging Logical Rules for Efficacious Representation of Large Orthology Datasets

Tarcisio M. Farias, Hirokazu Chiba, Jesualdo Tomás Fernández-Breis
2017 Workshop on Semantic Web Applications and Tools for Life Sciences  
In the semantic web applied to life sciences, ontologies provide a basis to define concepts and to describe data in biological databases, thereby facilitate data interoperability across multiple resources  ...  However, ORTH ontology lacks a basis to infer pairwise relations between genes besides more specific and accurate definitions of class restrictions, property domains and property ranges -which is hampering  ...  Several classes in life sciences related ontologies are not supposed to be instantiated or they are singleton classes (i.e. the class is only instantiated once).  ...

RP-Filter: A Path-Based Triple Filtering Method for Efficient SPARQL Query Processing [chapter]

Kisung Kim, Bongki Moon, Hyoung-Joo Kim
2012 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
Currently, most RDF databases store RDF data in a relational table called triple table and carry out several join operations on the triple tables for SPARQL query processing.  ...  However, the execution plans with many joins might be inefficient due to a large amount of intermediate data being passed between join operations.  ...  We used two datasets: YAGO2 [14] as a small real-life dataset and LUBM [15] as a large synthetic dataset. We generated the LUBM dataset with 10,000 universities 1 . Acknowledgements.  ...

2017 Journal of Healthcare Informatics Research  
The queries are constructed using SPARQL Protocol and RDF Query Language (SPARQL) over the EpiK.  ...  A query bank is developed-the queries capture a broad range of questions that can be posed and answered during a typical case study pertaining to disease outbreaks.  ...  They are harder to build, largely due to the expertise in computing and data science needed to build them.  ...
