Abstract [en]

Researchers in various areas in the life sciences use biomedical data sources and tools for their research. However, with the explosion of the amountof available data sources and tools, researchers also face the difficulties of finding and retrieving relevant information and tools as well as integratinginformation from different sources. The vision of the Semantic Web alleviates these difficulties. In this chapter, we introduce the Semantic Web anddiscuss steps that have been taken toward this vision. We discuss ontologies as a key technology as well as the recent development of Linked Data. Further, for each of these, we list issues for future research.
