Descriptions: 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.

GoPubMed

database

Provider: Transinsight
Contents: , ,
Access Level: ,
Descriptions: GoPubMed is an innovative, powerful search tool that combines the MeSH (Medical Subject Headings) and GO (Gene Ontology) terminologies to optimize the effectiveness of queries to PubMed- for everyone, but for molecular biologists in particular. Searching elicits results presented very quickly (maximum display: the most recent 1,000 citations), along with a sidebar presenting the full results in categorized, hierarchical groups of terms that help the user to focus in further- the producers of this search engine refer to it as a "knowledge-based semantic search." There are many more features to this search tool than can be described here.
