Abstract: In human′s research history, the scientific discoveries rely heavily on the accumulation of knowledge , information and data. China is promoting the innovative research approach and calls for the development of self independent intellectual property on drug research and industry . However , the current status of knowledge and data on medicinal plant resources
are scattered , isolated and unshared which hampers the efficient research . Based on the needs for sustainable use of medicinal plants, this study analyzed the current status of data on medicinal plants and the necessity for data synthesizing and standardizing , developed the framework and provided the standards schema for data exchange under the environment of e-Science. It is intended to construct a platform for information synthesizing and sharing .
