[…] & tsujii developed a search engine for medline abstracts, called facta, which retrieves textual evidence of associations between the query terms and the concepts. frijters et al. developed the copub discovery tool to assess the significance of co‐occurrence based on the mutual information measure and mine the new relationships between biomedical concepts. finally, yetisgen‐yildiz & […]

[…] decades ago and is increasingly being discussed in the scientific community (swanson, ; blagosklonny and pardee, ; soldatova and rzhetsky, ). several co-occurrence based-lbd approaches, such as copub mapper (alako et al., ), pubgene (jenssen et al., ), chilibot (chen and sharp, ), and geneways (rzhetsky et al., ), have been developed. other approaches have focused on capturing higher order […]

[…] limitations found in many of previous works. first, the discovered novel hypotheses were often unconfirmed with a clinical test [–]. such studies stayed as they found the existing facts. although copub discovery conducted experimental validation for testing their new hypotheses [], its elicited hypotheses lacked context information and were merely based on the co-occurrence relationship like […]

[…] of a computational approach as an efficient, yet powerful, approach to drug discovery [, ]. frijters et al. successfully found links between genes, drugs, pathways and diseases through their tool copub discovery that mines the biomedical literature for the elucidation of new relationships between these concepts []. based on their predictions, they validated two different drugs’ role in cell […]
