Provides an easy to implement, high performance tool for the construction of a biomedical symbol dictionary. The algorithms, applied to the MEDLINE document set, result in a high quality dictionary and toolset to disambiguate abbreviation symbols automatically.
Covers commonly used abbreviations and their definitions (or long-forms) within MEDLINE titles and abstracts, including both acronym and non-acronym abbreviations. A model of recognizing abbreviations and their long-forms from titles and abstracts of MEDLINE (2006 baseline) was employed. After grouping morphological variants, 59 405 abbreviation/long-form pairs were identified. ADAM shows high precision (97.4%) and includes most of the frequently used abbreviations contained in the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) Lexicon and the Stanford Abbreviation Database.
A search service for abbreviations and long forms utilized in Lifesciences. It provides a solution to the issue that many abbreviations are used in the literature, and polysemous or synonymous abbreviations appear frequently, making it difficult to read and understand scientific papers that are not relevant to the reader's expertise. Allie searches for abbreviations and their corresponding long forms from titles and abstracts in the entire MEDLINE, a database of the U.S. National Library of Medicine.
An inventory of abbreviations and acronyms from clinical texts. Sense inventories created using clinical notes and medical dictionary resources demonstrate challenges with term coverage and resource integration.
A searchable, cross-referenced, database of abbreviations and acronyms in biotechnology and computer science. To researchers in biotechnology in general, BioABACUS should help them avoid christening new terms with old acronyms or abbreviations.
Genomics researchers suffer from getting lost in the forest of gene aliases. Gene Name Service (GNS) solves this problem by providing a comprehensive alias resolution service of all widely used gene id nomenclatures. Most importantly, in addition to web-based interface, GNS also provides services through Web Service, which can be integrated into applications such as bioinformatics value-added databases, analysis pipelines or workflows.
Furnishes a dataset of sentences relevant to study how biomolecular interactions are described. ISDB provides sentences containing at least two biomolecule names and one of about 440 interaction-indicating terms. Its architecture can serve as a model for building a system that dynamically updates as new papers are published. This tool provides a support for investigation on text mining of interactions.
