One Billion Biochemical RDF Triples!

That must be a record! Eric Jain wrote on public-semweb-lifesci:

    The latest release of the UniProt protein database contains just over a
    billion triples*! PRESS RELEASE :-)

    The data is all available via the (Semantic or otherwise) Web:

    http://beta.uniprot.org/

    ...or can be bulk-downloaded from:

    ftp://ftp.uniprot.org/

    * Counting some reification statements, and assuming no overlap between
    "named graphs".

    P.S. This should be the last you'll hear from me on this topic -- I'm off
    to new adventures...

I surely hope this is not the last we hear of this huge RDF collection.
