Answering complex biological questions often involves separately querying several biodata resources, and combining the resulting data. In this talk, Tarcisio Mendes de Farias, Knowledge Representation Manager, introduces SIB’s Semantic Web of data. This framework, recently published by the dedicated SIB-wide focus group, enables users to retrieve knowledge from across 11 SIB databases, whose data are FAIR (Findable, Accessible, Interoperable, and Reusable), as well as external databases. If you are a biologist or a bioinformatician who needs to answer a biological or a clinical question using diverse resources, then this talk is for you!
