What text mining can do for you

Text mining offers a solution to the challenge of 'data deluge', information overload and information overlook. For more information, please see:

NaCTeM has developed text mining services and service exemplars for the UK academic community. Our services are underpinned by a number of generic natural language processing tools:

  • TerMine is a Term Management System which identifies key phrases in text.
  • AcroMine is an acronym dictionary which can be used to find distinct expanded forms of acronyms from MEDLINE.
  • Kleio is an advanced information retrieval system providing knowledge enriched searching for biomedicine.
  • FACTA+ is a MEDLINE search engine for finding associations between biomedical concepts.
  • IRS facilitates advanced searching of documents by making use of added value features extracted from full texts using NaCTeM text mining tools.
  • MEDIE uses semantic search to retrieve biomedical correlations from MEDLINE.
  • Info-PubMed uses a gene/protein dictionary and deep parsing to understand protein interactions [Firefox Required].
