Nextprot, a human protein database

I’m involved in this project to find an original way to make a new advanced search engine for neXtProt. neXtProt is an online knowledge platform on human proteins. It is based on a top-down data integration process, materialized in a central SQL engine (postgres). I started this new project by building a closed world RDF model which mainly focuses on the ability for the user to perform queries easily and get results quickly. The query engine service has been successfully tested on different opensource triplestore (virtuoso, fuseki and bigdata).
