UNLABELLED The BioText Search Engine is a freely available Web-based application that provides biologists with new ways to access the scientific literature. One novel feature is the ability to search and browse article figures and their captions. A grid view juxtaposes many different figures associated with the same keywords, providing new insight into the(More)
A prospective study of abdominal ultrasound was undertaken in 100 consecutive infants who presented with a history of persistent vomiting aged 5 to 90 days. Each infant had a 'test feed' followed by an ultrasonographic scan of the pylorus at the cotside. On test feeding a palpable tumour was evident in 38 infants. On real time ultrasound using the criteria(More)
This paper presents the results of a pilot us-ability study of a novel approach to search user interfaces for bioscience journal articles. The main idea is to support search over figure captions explicitly, and show the corresponding figures directly within the search results. Participants in a pilot study expressed surprise at the idea, noting that they(More)
This paper reports on the results of two questionnaires asking biologists about the incorporation of text-extracted entity information, specifically gene and protein names, into bioscience literature search user interfaces. Among the findings are that study participants want to see gene/protein metadata in combination with organism information; that a(More)
When reading bioscience journal articles, many researchers focus attention on the figures and their captions. This observation led to the development of the BioText literature search engine, a freely available Web-based application that allows biologists to search over the contents of Open Access Journals, and see figures from the articles displayed(More)
Cytogenetic findings on a family with ataxia telangiectasia (A-T) in which three of four sibs were affected are described. The affected individuals had approximately twice the level of spontaneous chromosome breakage of a normla control, while the parents and the normal sib had no significant increase. Lymphocytes from all three A-T homozygotes showed(More)
Harlequin fetus is a rare clinical entity, and survival of affected infants beyond the first year of life is uncommon. Management involves intensive care of the skin and eyes, close monitoring of fluid and electrolyte status, constant support and counselling of parents, and surveillance against infection and side-effects of medication. A well-coordinated(More)
