Biomax Oncology Base
The Biomax Oncology Base is the first comprehensive index of virtually all published cancer-related genes (over 6000) and their associations to diseases and drug compounds. It is constructed from a mixture of automatic text mining of MEDLINE abstracts (using the BioLT Literature Mining Tool), semi-automatic verification, and manual validation and scoring of results. For each manually validated cancer gene, annotators read all the cancer-term-associated and drug-term-associated statements and add structured, controlled vocabularies describing the gene's role in the cancer and the associated evidence.
- Integrates project data with clinical data and experimental data using the BioXM Knowledge Management Environment
- Searches for networks of relationships and candidate genes
- Connects information related to clinical conditions to the field of molecular biology
- Finds connections between cancer sub-types, genes and compounds
