Genebanks and genomics: how to interconnect data from both communities?

Finkers, H.J.; Chibon, P.Y.F.R.P.; Treuren, R. van; Visser, R.G.F.; Hintum, T.J.L. van


Genebanks are important suppliers of genetic resources to the genomics research community, and access to the resulting information will allow traditional genebank users to better select genetic material for their breeding and scientific programmes. We discuss herein a possible solution to interconnect these data automatically based on semantic web technology.
