Open PHACTS is a public-private partnership between academia, publishers, small and medium sized enterprises and pharmaceutical companies. The goal of the project is to deliver and sustain an 'open pharmacological space' using and enhancing state-of-the-art semantic web standards and technologies. It is focused on practical and robust applications to solve(More)
There is an urgent need to improve the infrastructure supporting the reuse of scholarly data. A diverse set of stakeholders-representing academia, industry, funding agencies, and scholarly publishers-have come together to design and jointly endorse a concise and measureable set of principles that we refer to as the FAIR Data Principles. The intent is that(More)
Scientific literature is often fragmented, which implies that certain scientific questions can only be answered by combining information from various articles. In this paper, a new algorithm is proposed for finding associations between related concepts present in literature. To this end, concepts are mapped to a multi-dimensional space by a Hebbian type of(More)
WikiProteins enables community annotation in a Wiki-based system. Extracts of major data sources have been fused into an editable environment that links out to the original sources. Data from community edits create automatic copies of the original data. Semantic technology captures concepts co-occurring in one sentence and thus potential factual statements.(More)
Massive text mining of the biological literature holds great promise of relating disparate information and discovering new knowledge. However, disambiguation of gene symbols is a major bottleneck. We developed a simple thesaurus-based disambiguation algorithm that can operate with very little training data. The thesaurus comprises the information from five(More)
The rate of data production in the Life Sciences has now reached such proportions that to consider it irresponsible to fund data generation without proper concomitant funding and infrastructure for storing, analyzing and exchanging the information and knowledge contained in, and extracted from, those data, is not an exaggerated position any longer. The(More)
MOTIVATION Full-text documents potentially hold more information than their abstracts, but require more resources for processing. We investigated the added value of full text over abstracts in terms of information content and occurrences of gene symbol--gene name combinations that can resolve gene-symbol ambiguity. RESULTS We analyzed a set of 3902(More)
There is a trend towards automatic analysis of large amounts of literature in the biomedical domain. However, this can be effective only if the ambiguity in natural language is resolved. In this paper, the current state of research in word sense disambiguation (WSD) is reviewed. Several methods for WSD have already been proposed, but many systems have been(More)
Both asexual and sexual development of Plasmodium berghei was synchronized without chemical intervention using in vitro culture techniques. Combined in vivo and in vitro experiments were performed on the relationship between age, morphology and maturity of gametocytes. Schizogony took 22-23 h in the experiments. At 26 h post-invasion (p.i.) the first males(More)
