COEUS is a Semantic Web Application Framework that combines a set of algorithms to streamline the creation of new semantic web-based knowledge management systems. In a single package, it provides the tools to create new applications, including advanced integration connectors for different data sources along with ontology mapping techniques. With these applications, COEUS facilitates data access mechanisms for life sciences researchers, providing interoperability features and modern services such as SPARQL endpoints and LinkedData publishing interfaces. COEUS is being explored to standardize and link several rare diseases patient registries and biobanks by the bioinformatics team of the University of Aveiro (UAVR).
