In this data-driven era, the amount of biomedical and biological data has been increasing exponentially over time. These data are often in data silos, scattered and highly heterogeneous. These issues impede data (re)use and exchange, and therefore progress and breakthroughs in life science and health-care research. The Semantic Web of data focus group works towards common solutions for the seamless integration of life science datasets and databases, and their FAIRification.
