FAO Glossary of Biotechnology integrated into AGROVOC LOD
The FAO Glossary of Biotechnology for Food and Agriculture has been integrated into the AGROVOC Linked Open Data (LOD) set, adding 791 triples. The Biotechnology Glossary provides a consolidated, comprehensive and yet accessible list of terms and acronyms that are used regularly in biotechnology for food and agriculture and that represent a convenient reference source for researchers, students and technicians. It now contains 3,196 terms and related definitions.
AGROVOC LOD is the first and a largest Linked Open Data set in the Agricultural domain. The AGROVOC team and its technical partner MIMOS Berhad published AGROVOC as linked open data in April 2011. To this data set the Biotechnology Glossary has been added. The LOD Cloud Group of the Linking Open Data community has integrated AGROVOC LOD into the latest update of the Linked Open Data cloud diagram, a high level overview of linked data sets from around the globe.
