CiteXplore – integrating biomedical literature and data

28.11.2006
Today the European Molecular Biology Laboratory’s European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI) launches CiteXplore, a new freely accessible literature resource service.

Biological researchers require two crucial sources of information: scientific literature published in peer-reviewed journals and databases storing key biological data such as DNA and protein sequences, functions and structures of molecules and microarray data. Tools that integrate these two sources of information are desperately sought.

EMBL-EBI scientists have developed CiteXplore, a tool that links electronic literature resources to bioinformatics databases, to fulfil this need. It integrates abstracts from various resources including the US National Library of Medicine’s MEDLINE database of abstracts from peer-reviewed biomedical journals, biological abstracts from patent applications from the European Patent Office, and Chinese Biological Abstracts from the Shanghai Information Center for Life Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. From these abstracts CiteXplore links to full-text articles at various locations such as PubMedCentral and publisher websites.

CiteXplore also provides a direct link between the scientific literature and the EMBL-EBI’s biological databases. “When you are reading an abstract describing a specific gene or protein, typically you want more information on it, for example its sequence or its function, as well as easy access to the full paper,” says Peter Stoehr, who coordinates CiteXplore. CiteXplore uses powerful text-mining tools developed by EMBL-EBI researchers to link literature and databases automatically, so that at the touch of a button the biological terms are identified in the text and you can call up the record of the molecule that you are looking for.

In future, the range of literature resources hosted in CiteXplore will be extended for better coverage of other domains such as plant science, agricultural and food sciences, and to integrate it with UK PubMedCentral, a recently launched project led by a consortium comprising the British Library, University of Manchester and EMBL-EBI.

Im Focus: Lethal combination: Drug cocktail turns off the juice to cancer cells

A widely used diabetes medication combined with an antihypertensive drug specifically inhibits tumor growth – this was discovered by researchers from the University of Basel’s Biozentrum two years ago. In a follow-up study, recently published in “Cell Reports”, the scientists report that this drug cocktail induces cancer cell death by switching off their energy supply.

The widely used anti-diabetes drug metformin not only reduces blood sugar but also has an anti-cancer effect. However, the metformin dose commonly used in the...

Im Focus: New Foldable Drone Flies through Narrow Holes in Rescue Missions

A research team from the University of Zurich has developed a new drone that can retract its propeller arms in flight and make itself small to fit through narrow gaps and holes. This is particularly useful when searching for victims of natural disasters.

Inspecting a damaged building after an earthquake or during a fire is exactly the kind of job that human rescuers would like drones to do for them. A flying...
