The American Chemical Society (ACS) Division of Chemical Information (CINF) invited scientists from around the world to present their use of RDF technologies in chemistry on 22nd-23rd August 2010 at the 240th ACS National Meeting in Boston, USA. During three half-day sessions, the speakers demonstrated a mix of smaller and larger initiatives where Resource Description Framework (RDF) technologies are used in cheminformatics and bioinformatics as Open Standards for data exchange, common languages (ontologies), and problem solving. This Thematic Series introduces work presented at that meeting, showing the current advances in cheminformatics using these RDF technologies.
Article processing charges for this Thematic Series have been partially funded by Pfizer, Inc. Pfizer, Inc. has had no input into the content of the publication or the articles themselves. All articles in the series have been independently prepared by the authors and have been subject to the journal's standard peer review process.
