Webinar: Building a Knowledge Graph for Drug Discovery with SciBite and Stardog

Join our upcoming webinar where we will present the development of a knowledge graph in the area of drug repositioning. Experts from both SciBite and Stardog will demonstrate how together our technology enables pre-existing unstructured and semi-structured data to be combined into a rich knowledge graph.

Data in the life sciences is vast, ever expanding, and captured in a plethora of different formats. To extract actionable insights, that may otherwise remain unseen, from such a complex data landscape, sources need to be harmonised, or integrated. Knowledge graphs provide an intuitive means of representing these connected data and utilise ontologies to encode the semantics, or meaning, of entities and the relationships that exist between them.

One example where such an approach may prove beneficial is drug repositioning. By focussing on pre-approved drugs, with existing clinical safety profiles, drug repositioning has the potential to reduce both the time and cost of getting a drug to market. Typically, such findings have been made serendipitously, but by pulling together relevant data into a knowledge graph, a more systematic approach may be taken.

In this webinar we will present the development of a knowledge graph in the area of drug repositioning. We will show how SciBite and Stardog technology enable pre-existing unstructured and semi-structured data to be combined into a rich knowledge graph. It will be shown how the SciBite semantic platform: supports the creation of knowledge graph schema based on relevant ontologies; aligns unstructured data to these ontologies; identifies-occurrence relations between entities. Finally, we will demonstrate how this data may be loaded into Stardog, integrated with other sources and subsequently queried
