Publication: DisGeNET: a discovery platform for the dynamical exploration of human diseases and their genes

DisGeNET is a comprehensive discovery platform designed to address a variety of questions concerning the genetic underpinning of human diseases. DisGeNET contains over 380 000 associations between >16 000 genes and 13 000 diseases, which makes it one of the largest repositories currently available of its kind. DisGeNET integrates expert-curated databases with…

Publication: Publishing DisGeNET as Nanopublications

The increasing and unprecedented publication rate in the biomedical field is a major bottleneck for discovery in Life Sciences. Although the scientific community is limited an inability to manually curate facts from published papers, recent approaches enable the automatic, scalable and reliable extraction of assertions from the scientific literature. While…

Publication: Extraction of relations between genes and diseases from text and large-scale data analysis: implications for translational research

Background Current biomedical research needs to leverage and exploit the large amount of information reported in scientific publications. Automated text mining approaches, in particular those aimed at finding relationships between entities, are key for identification of actionable knowledge from free text repositories. We present the BeFree system aimed at identifying…

Publication: A Knowledge-Driven Approach to Extract Disease-Related Biomarkers from the Literature

The biomedical literature represents a rich source of biomarker information. However, both the size of literature databases and their lack of standardization hamper the automatic exploitation of the information contained in these resources. Text mining approaches have proven to be useful for the exploitation of information contained in the scientific…
