Hello Luis,

These are interesting ideas.  Have a look at http://sswap.info and 
http://sadiframework.org, perhaps you might want to work with one of 
those technologies?  Be warned, these are both in early-stage 
development, you are on the cutting edge here!

It seems like your desire to work with semantic technologies as a GSoC 
student could fit under a number of different mentoring organizations, 
possibly OBF or NEScent, or maybe another organization entirely.  I'll 
make some inquiries.

In the mean time, please add a project idea for this on the bioperl GSoC 
page, to give the idea somewhere to coalesce.  If you can, try to come 
up with a more concrete idea for what you want to do.


What do you think?

I think there are great development opportunities in information discovery using semantic web (I'm familiar with RDF in bio2rdf and uniprot, but it could also be useful to integrate OWL).  I've been playing with this, and I think parsers from, for example, GenBank and EMBL to RDF, and parsers of RDF from bio2rdf and uniprot would be very useful, specially thinking in the implementation of SPARQL.  The people of bio2rdf already have some parsers, but it's incompleteness is evident when working with their RDF as primary source of data.
