X-Miner On-Line


X-Mine of Brisbane, Calif., has unveiled its Opus biological knowledge discovery application, a text mining program designed to allow researchers to extract literature-based biological relationships between genes without performing an exhaustive literature search. The program presents the results in a table that displays relationships between genes and scores indicating the strength of the relationship. This product introduction comes just after the company introduced its X-Miner On-Line genomic analysis system, an online microarray data mining package, which includes clustering algorithms, supervised machine learning programs, and also uses its “Reporter” engine to mine biological literature and genome databases in order to find biologically meaningful relationships.
