Release of Taverna Plugin for U-Compare


Text mining from the biomedical literature is of increasing importance, yet it is not easy for the bioinformatics community to create and run text mining workflows due to the lack of accessibility and interoperability of the text mining resources. The U-Compare system provides a wide range of bio text mining resources in a highly interoperable workflow environment where workflows can very easily be created, executed, evaluated and visualized without coding.

A new plugin has been created that links U-Compare to Taverna, a generic workflow system. This will allow text mining functionality to be exposed to the bioinformatics community.

Further details are available in the following paper:
