Provider: Quertle, LLC
Descriptions: Developed by two experts in bioinformatics and data analysis, Quertle offers a uniquely effective way to execute a combined search of the biomedical literature in PubMed, the RePORTER grants database, TOXLINE, and a medical/life science news outlet. This tool also searches the full text of open-access material in BioMed Central and PubMed Central, as well as that of user-submitted scientific whitepapers and research posters. Quertle uses natural-language query constructs very like sentence structure and uses relationships to return relevant results. For details on how it works, see the FAQ tab. A handy brochure on searching and video/other tutorials are found under the Resources tab. Quertle also works with various bibliographic management tools, including RefWorks.
