Solubility Data in Bioclipse #2: handling RDF

RDF is swiftly becoming the lingua franca of life sciences (see for example [1,2]). Bioclipse is an excellent platform to visualize results from analysis of the network, both for graph visualization (see [3]), as well of visualization of domain specific data types (e.g. sequences, molecules, ...).

Yesterday I uploaded a Bioclipse feature that adds a rdf manager to handle RDF content, which includes SPARQL support. The below snippet shows application to the solubility data [3]:

Maybe RDF support in Eclipse is an idea for its Google Summer of Code?
