    2224== NeXML/RDF as a BioRuby plugin == 
    2325Elements in NeXML documents can be annotated using RDFa. This means that every element (and the objects in which it can be de-serialized) can be the subject in an RDF triple. For example, TreeBASE uses this extensively to add metadata about submissions to its repository to the NeXML it produces (e.g. author names, NCBI taxonomy record identifiers, etc.). In order to fully implement NeXML functionality, the BioRuby objects that are generated when reading a NeXML file should therefore be able to be annotated with predicates (with namespaces) and with objects (also, perhaps, with namespaces). To make this possible, Anurag started some work on this, but this needs to be extended and released as a biogem (bio-rdf?)
