My colleagues Erik Schultes and Herman van Haagen have produced a web page about so-called 'nano-publications': http://nanopub.org. It accompanies a Nature Genetics Commentary that we wrote in collaboration with one of its editors. Research Objects and nano-publications are related, given that nano-publications also aim to capture and link experimental data and findings. The BioSemantics group and myGrid are both involved in the project in which the nano-publication model is developed.
The page shows first example 'nano-publications' in RDF. These are not technically perfect yet, but note that the page is primarily for a non-computer-science audience (readers of Nature Genetics).
