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 ...
uBioRSS : tracking taxonomic literature using RSS
(Oxford University Press, 2007-03-28)
Web content syndication through standard formats such as RSS and ATOM has become an increasingly popular mechanism for publishers, news sources, and blogs to disseminate regularly updated content. These standardized ...
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 ...
A model for Bioinformatics training : the Marine Biological Laboratory
Many areas of science such as biology, medicine, and oceanography are becoming increasingly data-rich and most programs that train scientists do not address informatics techniques or technologies that are necessary for ...
Data hosting infrastructure for primary biodiversity data
(BioMed Central, 2011-12-15)
Today, an unprecedented volume of primary biodiversity data are being generated worldwide, yet significant amounts of these data have been and will continue to be lost after the conclusion of the projects tasked with ...
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. ...
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.
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 ...
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 ...
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 ...
