RDF datasets and SPARQL endpoints hosting them are increasingly available in the life science domain. One consequence is that users have increasing difficulties in finding those endpoints which are reliable and stable. For providers, it is not an easy task to provide appropriate metadata to be easily findable. To solve these issues, we propose a service to provide a place where data providers and data consumers can communicate with each other. Here we introduce YummyData, a service that

YummyData helps by providing a curated list of endpoints, and by monitoring over time their availability, updates rate, standard compliance, and other features that are important to data consumers. As we believe these data are valuable for both providers and consumers, YummyData provides a forum where providers and consumers of life science information in RDF can communicate and improve the usability of the web of life science data. You can freely access YummyData at http://yummydata.org/ .
