Networks Models of Actin Dynamics during Spermatozoa Postejaculatory Life: A Comparison among Human Made and Text Mining Based Models

Biomed Res Int
PMCID: 5013236
PMID: 27642606
DOI: 10.1155/2016/9795409

[…] n” or “phosphorylation”) to be found in the cooccurrence analysis, as text mining engine to extract sentences with cooccurring bioentities from the text of the PubMed abstracts requested that it uses LAITOR (Barbosa altro). P_SAN was created by using the list of PMIDs of the papers we have manually selected for the realization of HM_SAN. […]


Text Mining for Protein Docking

PLoS Comput Biol
PMCID: 4674139
PMID: 26650466
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pcbi.1004630

[…] lection of semantically annotated documents) has been specifically designed for testing NLP approaches []. PESCADOR extracts a network of interactions from a user-provided set of PubMed abstracts []. LAITOR can further filter this mined interactome according to the specific user needs []. CRAB extracts data from MEDLINE abstracts, which are relevant to tumor-related chemicals posing risk to human […]


Large Scale Structure of a Network of Co Occurring MeSH Terms: Statistical Analysis of Macroscopic Properties

PLoS One
PMCID: 4090190
PMID: 25006672
DOI: 10.1371/journal.pone.0102188

[…] ge. A plethora of applications have been developed exploiting co-occurrence for mining interesting patterns in biomedical resources (e.g., BITOLA , iHOP , AliBaba , EBIMed , FACTA , PLAN2L , STRING , LAITOR ).Analyzing big relational datasets requires innovative methodological approaches beyond the basic exploratory mining. Recent years have seen an increasing interest in the study of large, real- […]


Systems Biology Elucidates Common Pathogenic Mechanisms between Nonalcoholic and Alcoholic Fatty Liver Disease

PLoS One
PMCID: 3596348
PMID: 23516571

[…] arrying out terms' tagging, a total of 228 gene/protein terms were identified for AFLD () and 314 terms were found for NAFLD ().Of note, the data mining method implemented in PESCADOR is based on the LAITOR (Literature Assistant for Identification of Terms co-Occurrences and Relationships) tool that ensures the users the analysis of the meaning of the text, not just the presence of key words. Act […]


Preimplantation development regulatory pathway construction through a text mining approach

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 3287586
PMID: 22369103
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-12-S4-S3

[…] ficantly smaller. However, the verification of all the interactions highlighted by the tool is essential. Text-mining is not able to eliminate the selection of false interaction pairs; in the case of LAITOR (contained in the PESCADOR platform), the type 3 and 4 interactions can present genes with no association specified in the text [].The text-mining data contribute the complete description of th […]
