Search and retrieval of information from scientific papers is an important daily task for all geneticists. However, it is not as simple as appears: biomedical scientific literature has been growing exponentially and at this moment there are over 18 millions of abstracts in PubMed.
GoPubMed is a freely available online tool that implements a novel approach for the organization and visualization of search results from PubMed. GoPubMed classifies the search results according to different relevant categories, including Gene Ontologies (such as Biological Processes, Molecular Functions or Cellular Components) and other biological classes (such as Anatomy, Diseases, Organisms or Techniques).
In addition, additional variables of importance (such as journals, countries, authors and years) related to the search topics of interest can be easily visualized.
GoPubMed is part of a series of efforts aimed to develop and implement more sophisticated and practical ways for mining and access the vast amount of data present in the biomedical literature.
"GoPubMed reduces time to search as it is possible to quickly focus on the few relevant documents within a large result set navigating with GoPubMed's expert knowledge". Professor Michael Schroeder.
