Publication: Managing expectations: assessment of chemistry databases generated by automated extraction of chemical structures from patents

First public disclosure of new chemical entities often takes place in patents, which makes them an important source of information. However, with an ever increasing number of patent applications, manual processing and curation on such a large scale becomes even more challenging. An alternative approach better suited for this large…
