AGRA: analysis of gene ranking algorithms

PMCID: 3072556
PMID: 21349873
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btr097

[…] sociation strengths between a query and different types of biomedical concepts based on their textual co-occurrence statistics (). While other similar systems exist, such as XplorMed (), MedlineR (), LitMiner () and Anii (), FACTA was chosen because of its ability to pre-index words and concepts, which result in fast, real-time responses of the system. AGRA needs to process high amount of data, an […]


Automated seeding of specialised wiki knowledgebases with BioKb

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 2753848
PMID: 19758431
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-10-291

[…] creation of a more generic knowledgebase, similarly to Wikipedia. WikiGenes [] is a good example of this, and deals specifically with provenance, as a key issue in the application of Wiki technology. LitMiner [] employs an associated wiki for collaborative editing of the links between genes, tissues, diseases and compounds. The ease of use and collaborative nature of wiki technology has also led t […]


FACTA: a text search engine for finding associated biomedical concepts

PMCID: 2572701
PMID: 18772154
DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btn469

[…] pts including diseases, genes/proteins, drugs, metabolites, SNPs, pathways and tissues. Systems that provide similar functionality include XplorMed (Perez-Iratxeta et al., ), MedlineR (Lin et al., ), LitMiner (Maier et al., ) and Anii (Jelier et al., ).Although these applications are useful in exploring such information in the literature, not many of them provide real-time responses—the users ofte […]


Regulatory module network of basic/helix loop helix transcription factors in mouse brain

Genome Biol
PMCID: 2258200
PMID: 18021424
DOI: 10.1186/gb-2007-8-11-r244

[…] Literature data mining was performed with the web-based tool LitMiner []. LitMiner is a literature data mining tool that is based on the annotation of key terms in article abstracts present in PubMed []. This was followed by statistical co-citation analysis of […]


Novel subtractive transcription based amplification of mRNA (STAR) method and its application in search of rare and differentially expressed genes in AD brains

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 1637111
PMID: 17090317
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2164-7-286

[…] wn genes from each subtracted library were obtained from the SOURCE database using their respective Genbank accession numbers. These symbols were imported into a literature mining prototype software, LitMiner [], developed by the National Research Council of Canada to identify relationships among genes and their association with biological processes. The search uses the standard UniGene symbols an […]


The Autoimmune Disease Database: a dynamically compiled literature derived database

BMC Bioinformatics
PMCID: 1525205
PMID: 16803617
DOI: 10.1186/1471-2105-7-325

[…] e emerged that aim to assist in this task. To the best of our knowledge, there is no tool or database that provides the same information like the AIDB. Here we briefly review some of the related work.LitMiner [] is a literature data-mining tool that assists in the identification of gene regulation key players related to a user defined set of key terms within PubMed abstracts. Relationships can be […]
