The European Molecular Biology Laboratory’s European Bioinformatics Institute launched CiteXplore this week. CiteXplore links electronics literature resources to bioinformatics databases providing researchers access to scientific literature published in peer-reviewed journals and databases containing biological data such as DNA and protein sequences, functions, and structures of molecules and microarray data, the company said in a statement.
CiteXplore integrates abstracts from resources including the US National Library of Medicine’s Medline database, the European Patent Office, and Chinese biological abstracts from the Shanghai Information Center for Life Sciences, Chinese Academy of Sciences. From the abstracts, CiteXplore links to full-text articles at various locations.
