Biologists and biotechnologists need to draw information from numerous distributed and heterogeneous resources, such as online biomedical databases, nomenclatures and specialised bioinformatics tools. These tasks can benefit significantly from semantic data federation with SADI Semantic Web services where multiple resources exposed through SADI services are accessed as a single virtual SPARQL-queriable database. We provide evidence in support of this premise by creating and testing a kit of public SADI services for a number of bioinformatics databases and programs, and by demonstrating how it can be used to serve real information needs of ecotoxicology researchers, by using the services to answer some model queries.
