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 corpus of documents is the Read more about Publication: Managing expectations: assessment of chemistry databases generated by automated extraction of chemical structures from patents[…]

Biological annotations in SureChEMBL

Biological patent annotations are now displayed on the SureChEMBL interface. In collaboration with Open PHACTS and SciBite, the EBI have implemented a mechanism to allow users to highlight biological entities (such as genes and diseases) within SureChEMBL patent documents. For more information see the SureChEMBL blog. This is a first step towards full integration of patent information into the Read more about Biological annotations in SureChEMBL[…]
