Abstract In scientific research, integration and synthesis require a common understanding of where data come from, how much they can be trusted, and what they may be used for. To make such an understanding computer-accessible requires standards for exchanging richly annotated data. The challenges of conveying reusable data are particularly acute in regard to evolutionary comparative analysis, which comprises an ever-expanding list of data types, methods, research aims, and subdisciplines.

Title RNeXML : A package for reading and writing richly annotated phylogenetic , character and trait data in
1. NeXML is a powerful and extensible exchange standard recently proposed to better meet the expanding needs for phylogenetic data and metadata sharing. Here we present the RNeXML package, whichExpand
RNeXML: a package for reading and writing richly annotated phylogenetic, character and trait data in r
TLDR
The RNeXML package is presented, which provides users of the r programming language with easy-to-use tools for reading and writing NeXML documents, including rich metadata, in a way that interfaces seamlessly with the extensive library of phylogenetic tools already available in the r ecosystem. Expand
JPhyloIO: a Java library for event-based reading and writing of different phylogenetic file formats through a common interface
TLDR
The Java library JPhyloIO, which allows event-based reading and writing of the most common alignment and tree/network formats and allows full access to all features of the nine currently supported formats, enables simplified development of new and extension of existing applications that support various standard formats simultaneously. Expand
Bio.Phylo: A unified toolkit for processing, analyzing and visualizing phylogenetic trees in Biopython
TLDR
This library is capable of parsing common file formats for phylogenetic trees, performing basic transformations and manipulations, attaching rich annotations, and visualizing trees, and simplifies the construction of phylogenetic workflows. Expand
The Biological Object Notation (BON): a structured file format for biological data
TLDR
The “biological object notation” (BON) format is presented, a new way to exchange and parse nearly all biological data sets more efficiently and with less error than other currently available formats based on JavaScript Object Notation (JSON). Expand
FAIR data representation in times of eScience: a comparison of instance-based and class-based semantic representations of empirical data using phenotype descriptions as example
  • Lars Vogt
  • Medicine
  • Journal of biomedical semantics
  • 2021
TLDR
The instance-based ABox approach is recommended as a FAIR approach for documenting and communicating empirical data and metadata in a knowledge graph and the advantages of the class-based TBox semantic graph approach are outweighed. Expand
phylotree.js - a JavaScript library for application development and interactive data visualization in phylogenetics
TLDR
Phylotree.js is a library that extends the popular data visualization framework d3.js, and is suitable for building JavaScript applications where users can view and interact with phylogenetic trees. Expand
Unifying Phenotypes to Support Semantic Descriptions
TLDR
The present article remodels semi-structured descriptions to a graph abstraction in which the data are linked, and subsidizes the transition from semi- Structured data representation to a more formalized representation through ontologies. Expand
Advancing data reuse in phyloinformatics using an ontology-driven Semantic Web approach
TLDR
An ontology-driven, semantic problem-solving environment for phylogenetic analyses is described and artefacts that can promote phyloinformatic efforts to promote accessibility of trees and underlying metadata are introduced. Expand
Phylesystem: a git-based data store for community-curated phylogenetic estimates
TLDR
The development of software infrastructure to support the open curation of phylogenetic data by the community of biologists is reported, including a server running the ‘phylesystem-api’, which wraps the interactions with git and GitHub. Expand

RDFa in XHTML: Syntax and Processing
TLDR
This document specifies how to use RDFa with XHTML, a specification for attributes to express structured data in any markup language that allows authors and publishers of data to define their own formats without having to update software, register formats via a central authority, or worry that two formats may interfere with each other.
