NEW YORK (GenomeWeb News) – Linguamatics said today that it has integrated ChemAxon’s substructure and structure similarity search capabilities into its I2E text-mining platform.
The integrated technology will help address the problem of identifying facts and relationships from text documents for chemical compounds that are structurally similar, the company said.
That ability will enable users to query for chemical compounds in text documents and to examine relevant facts and relationships, Linguamatics said.
Combining structure mining with other textual and numeric information “adds significant value for a range of applications,” including lead identification, safety and toxicity identification, chemogenomics, and patent analysis, the Cambridge, UK-based company said.
"Text mining has become a core capability in pharmaceutical R&D and our customers want to answer business-critical questions that cross traditional information silos," Linguamatics’ COO, Roger Hale said in a statement.
