Here is a report in New Scientist Tech about a program that facilitates representing experimental data into an ontology. It is really hard to understand exactly what it does from the article, especially since the last part says that there is long manual process. How is this different from manually parsing an experimental description into XML? Anybody from UsefulChem want to play with it to find out what it can do in chemistry? The article says the source code is available.
Thanks to Sundar for the link.
