Data citation and the derivation of semantic constructs directly from datasets have now both found their place in scientific communication. The social challenge facing us is to maintain the value of traditional narrative publications and their relationship to the datasets they report upon while at the same time developing appropriate metrics for citation of(More)
A new year, a new face. The European Journal has now entered its sixth year! As announced, we have switched publishers and as of 1998 we will be published by Stockton Press.

On 21 January this year, David Cox, 66, MD, PhD, a world-renowned academic, founder of two companies, Mercator Genetics and Perlegen Sciences, and senior vice president with Pfizer since 2008, suddenly passed away. He went like he was: happy, optimistic, and on a journey. He dozed off on the shuttlebus to the hotel and just never woke up. He leaves a big(More)
The aim of our study is to investigate whether single-nucleotide dystrophin gene (DMD) variants associate with variability in cognitive functions in healthy populations. The study included 1240 participants from the Erasmus Rucphen family (ERF) study and 1464 individuals from the Rotterdam Study (RS). The participants whose exomes were sequenced and who(More)
The production of textual information in the biomedical domain is very large. More than 400.000 papers are added to Medline per year. Recently researchers have started to work on the implementation and use of text mining tools to extract knowledge from these huge data sets. For the larger part these tools employ more traditional text mining techniques like(More)
With the advent of next generation sequencing, basic, translational and clinical scientists in the biomedical field are confronted with a data deluge of unprecedented proportions. While in the past genetic data often were imprecise because of modest resolution of the technology, today the reverse is almost true. DNA data have become precise to the base(More)
