Here we present a holistic approach for data exploration on dense knowledge graphs as a novel approach with a proof-of-concept in biomedical research. Knowledge graphs are increasingly becoming a vital factor in knowledge mining and discovery as they connect data using technologies from the semantic web. In this paper we extend a basic knowledge graph extracted from biomedical literature by context data like named entities and relations obtained by text mining and other linked data sources like

This method will build the foundation for quality control, validation of hypothesis, detection of missing data and time series analysis of biomedical knowledge in general. In this context we tried to apply multiple-valued decision diagrams to these questions. In addition this knowledge representation of linked data can be used as FAIR approach to answer semantic questions. This paper sheds new lights on dense and very large knowledge graphs and the importance of a graph-theoretic understanding of these networks.
