The past decade has witnessed the modern advances of high-throughput technology and rapid growth of research capacity in producing large-scale biological data, both of which were concomitant with an exponential growth of biomedical literature. This wealth of scholarly knowledge is of significant importance for researchers in making scientific discoveries and healthcare professionals in managing health-related matters. However, the acquisition of such information is becoming increasingly difficult due to its large volume and rapid growth.
Allows users to explore PubMed search results with the Gene Ontology (GO), a hierarchically structured vocabulary for molecular biology. GoPubMed provides the following benefits: first, it gives an overview of the literature abstracts by categorizing abstracts according to the GO and thus allowing users to quickly navigate through the abstracts by category. Second, GoPubMed automatically shows general ontology terms related to the original query, which often do not even appear directly in the abstract. Third, it enables users to verify its classification because GO terms are highlighted in the abstracts and as each term is labelled with an accuracy percentage. Fourth, exploring PubMed abstracts with GoPubMed is useful as it shows definitions of GO terms without the need for further look up.
A text-mining system for scientific literature. Its two major features are access to the full text of research papers and the development and use of categories of biological concepts as well as categories that describe or relate objects. A search engine enables the user to search for one or a combination of these categories and/or keywords within an entire literature.
Quantifies absolute risks of cardiovascular disease in people aged 25-84 years. QRISK includes established risk factors and new risk factors: expanded definition of chronic kidney disease, migraine, corticosteroid use, systemic lupus erythematosus (SLE), atypical antipsychotic use, severe mental illness, erectile dysfunction, and a measure of blood pressure variability. This tool supplies valid measures of absolute risk in the general population of patients.
Gives access to Medline and various other medical literature databases. HighWire Press offers search engine functions designed for medical literature. It can locate a particular article in a set of about 1000 journals and more than one million of free, full-text articles online. This search engine is queryable using author names, keywords, journal names, year of publication, and Medical Subject Headings such as PubMed.
Allows simple text based mining of the NCBI literature search service PubMed using any two lists of keywords terms, resulting in a frequency matrix of term cooccurrence. PubMatrix is a web-based toll that provides previous searches using common useful lists of keyword terms. It is a simple intuitive multiplex comparison tool requiring no user understanding of algorithm design, perl, or scripting, and minimal instruction time. It allows automatic systematic searching of PubMed followed by a quick intuitive survey of results, and as such, dramatically reduces the investigator time needed to query PubMed as compared to a gene-by-gene approach.
Assists scientists to find scientific literacy. Scientific Literacy Tool is a web platform that can be useful in the process of learning. More especially, this tool is useful to: discover new ideas; explore different sources of information; and understand several types of terminologies.
