NextBio Basic is a free web application for searching biomedical and genetic information. It provides access to a ‘curated, correlated database’ of public data into which NextBio integrates Medline literature, clinical trial information, and news. Its semantic framework is based on gene, tissue, disease and compound ontologies. Registered users (registration for this basic version is free) can personalize their experience, communicate, collaborate and share data with the rest of the NextBio community. For the registered user, a single search for a gene yields quick results arranged by category: an overview of the gene; a list of tissues in which the gene is expressed; diseases and compounds relating to the gene; a list of the top associated researchers and authors; literature, associated clinical trials, and more.
