|Session:||DEMO 01 The BiCIKL toolbox to link biodiversity data|
|Description:||We will demonstrate tools and infrastructure from the BiCIKL project to find and establish links between entities|
We will demonstrate tools and infrastructure from the BiCIKL project to find and establish links between entities. These include:
- Infrastructure to create and manage machine actionable persistent identifiers (PIDs) for digital specimens. This allows the creation and annotation of digital specimens as new actionable objects on the internet, which provide a surrogate for physical specimens.
- OpenBiodiv is a linked open data (LOD) knowledge graph extracted from the biodiversity literature. OpenBiodiv can discover hidden links, e.g., between authors, taxa, sequences, material citations, publications and others using general search, SPARQL (query language), user applications and API.
- TreatmentBank liberates data from within publications, and converts, enhances, links, stores, and disseminates it as findable, accessible, interoperable and reusable (FAIR) data. The API has been enhanced allowing better data linkages through identifiers, matching services, and avenues for annotation.
- The SIBiLS custom search services provide access to biomedical literature, including PubMed Central (PMC) and MEDLINE. It also provides access to half a million taxonomic treatments curated by Plazi. BICIKL has helped aggregate more publications, enabling the creation of an all-inclusive “One Health” library, the BiodiversityPMC.
- ChecklistBank is an open data repository with a focus on taxonomy and nomenclature. It has tools for name matching, dataset comparison, and for linking taxonomic names from literature.
