NCIBI Pubmed database

(Web service interface)

Contains all biomedical articles from the National Library of Medicine's (NLM) Pubmed database, with source files downloaded nightly and updated to the database. Also contains additional data from natural language processing. Data are available in XML format via a web service interface.

Query for all the genes (symbols/synonyms) / metabolites mentioned in a full-text article/set of articles

Query for all the full-text articles that mention a gene/set of genes (symbols/synonyms) / metabolites

NCIBI Pubmed Central database

(Web service interface)

Contains all full-text biomedical
articles from the Pubmed Central Open Access (PMCOA) database, with source files
downloaded monthly and updated to the database. Also contains additional data from natural language processing. Raw data are available via a SOAP interface. Data are available in XML format via a web service interface.



Query for natural language processing (NLP) extracted sentences, named entity tags, parse trees, or protein interactions from an abstract or full text article

Natural Language Processing (NLP) techniques in PubMed and PubMed Central databases

(Web service interface)

NLP in these databases tags gene names, gene name synonyms, and metabolites from segmented sentences. Protein-protein interactions and their annotations are also extracted. Techniques include sentence segmentation, named entity tagging, and parsing sentences into trees. From trees, the NLP determines phrase structures within sentences and grammatical relationships between pairs of words. Data are available in XML format via a web service interface.

Query for detailed information on a Gene

View relationships amongst genes and to get access to supporting PubMed articles

NCIBI GENE database

Contains Gene data from public sources. Available as a part of the MiMI data offering and through the MimiWeb website.

To query on specific Metabolomics including reactions, and compounds

To view chemical make up of compounds

NCIBI HUMDB database

Contains Metabolomics data from public and internal sources. Integrates Reactions, Compounds, Genes, and Proteins. Available on the web in the MimiWeb Beta website and through the Metscape plugin for Cytoscape.

NCIBI MiMI database

(Web service interface)

Contains protein, Gene, Pathway and Interaction data integrated together from a number of data sources such as HPRD and KEGG. The database is rebuilt on a regular basis. Web service access to the MiMI database is available here. MimiWeb is the web interface to MiMI.
