miRiaD: A Text Mining Tool for Detecting Associations of microRNAs with Diseases

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 4877743
PMID: 27216254
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-015-0044-y

[…] s association with the disease can be explained. We use PubTator, which uses GenNorm [] to identify gene mentions in a sentence. In order to detect cellular processes, we follow the method adopted in eGIFT [], which uses dictionary look-ups or morphological derivatives e.g., terms/phrases with -sion, −tion, −sis, −or, −er, −ment suffixes. Candidate linking entity phrases are excluded if they are d […]


Impact of a decision aid on reducing uncertainty: pilot study of women in their 40s and screening mammography

BMC Med Inform Decis Mak
PMCID: 4640415
PMID: 26554555
DOI: 10.1186/s12911-015-0210-2

[…] into the tool; and two logged into the tool but did not complete the entire process. The remaining 51 age-risk appropriate women test piloted the decision aid. They received a $15.00 Starbuck’s Card eGift by email as a token of appreciation. […]


Transcriptome response to heat stress in a chicken hepatocellular carcinoma cell line

PMCID: 4595433
PMID: 26238561
DOI: 10.1007/s12192-015-0621-0

[…] DAVID functional enrichment analysis classified transcripts enriched in control cells into two groups: DNA replication and DNA repair. Characterizing this gene list with eGIFT iTerms supported the DAVID analysis (Table  and Fig. ) and extended it to identify genes involved in chromosomal segregation and telomeric function. Some of these downregulated genes control the […]


Predictors of caregiver depression and family functioning after perinatal stroke

PMCID: 4502550
PMID: 26174779
DOI: 10.1186/s12887-015-0397-5

[…] minder in two weeks’ time if the questionnaires were not yet electronically submitted. All participants were given the option to fill-out paper versions of the questionnaires, and they received a $10 eGift card in recognition of their contribution. Participants were excluded from the analyses if they had less than nine years of formal education (excluding schooling prior to four years of age), wer […]


Transcriptome Analysis of Post Hatch Breast Muscle in Legacy and Modern Broiler Chickens Reveals Enrichment of Several Regulators of Myogenic Growth

PLoS One
PMCID: 4379050
PMID: 25821972
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0122525

[…] ue < 0.05 were identified as differentially expressed between the two lines. Text mining was performed and informative terms (iTerms) were generated from the differentially expressed gene lists using eGIFT []. Gene ontology analysis was performed using the lists of differentially enriched genes with the AgBase GOSlim ontology, and the AgBase tools GORetriever and GOSlimViewer []. Any GO terms with […]


Parent and family impact of raising a child with perinatal stroke

PMCID: 4107574
PMID: 25018138
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2431-14-182

[…] ts to save and alter their responses prior to submission. All participants were given the option to complete paper versions of the questionnaires. The vast majority of the participants received a $10 eGift card in recognition of their contribution, while the participants recruited through the university received one bonus credit toward a course. The data were downloaded from Qualtrics and stored i […]
