LigerCat : using “MeSH clouds” from journal, article, or gene citations to facilitate the identification of relevant biomedical literature
(American Medical Informatics Association, 2009-11-14)
The identification of relevant literature from within large collections is often a challenging endeavor. In the context of indexed resources, such as MEDLINE, it has been shown that keywords from a controlled vocabulary ...
GenBank and PubMed : how connected are they?
(BioMed Central, 2009-06-09)
GenBank(R) is a public repository of all publicly available molecular sequence data from a range of sources. In addition to relevant metadata (e.g., sequence description, source organism and taxonomy), publication information ...
Envisioning the future of science libraries at academic research institutions : a discussion
A group of librarians, other information professionals, scientists and research administrators met to discuss the challenges that research libraries are currently facing. After the meeting a survey was conducted to obtain ...
The taxonomic name resolution service : an online tool for automated standardization of plant names
(BioMed Central, 2013-01-16)
The digitization of biodiversity data is leading to the widespread application of taxon names that are superfluous, ambiguous or incorrect, resulting in mismatched records and inflated species numbers. The ultimate ...
Broadly sampled multigene analyses yield a well-resolved eukaryotic tree of life
An accurate reconstruction of the eukaryotic tree of life is essential to identify the innovations underlying the diversity of microbial and macroscopic (e.g. plants and animals) eukaryotes. Previous work has divided ...
Names are key to the big new biology
Those who seek answers to big, broad questions about biology, especially questions emphasizing the organism (taxonomy, evolution, ecology), will soon benefit from an emerging names-based infrastructure. It will draw on ...
Intra- and interspecies differences in growth and toxicity of Pseudo-nitzschia while using different nitrogen sources
Clonal cultures of plankton are widely used in laboratory experiments and have contributed greatly to knowledge of microbial systems. However, many physiological characteristics vary drastically between strains of the ...
The taxonomic significance of species that have only been observed once : the genus Gymnodinium (Dinoflagellata) as an example
(Public Library of Science, 2012-08-30)
Taxonomists have been tasked with cataloguing and quantifying the Earth’s biodiversity. Their progress is measured in code-compliant species descriptions that include text, images, type material and molecular sequences. ...
Applications of natural language processing in biodiversity science
(Hindawi Publishing, 2012)
Centuries of biological knowledge are contained in the massive body of scientific literature, written for human-readability but too big for any one person to consume. Large-scale mining of information from the literature ...
Building research networks to support campus programs [poster]
This poster focuses on the methods, tools and outcomes involved in creating two targeted research networks to support large, long-running research programs in the Woods Hole scientific community.
