Technology of SCAIView

Technological backgrounds

The selected biomedical entities are found by an approximate search algorithm implemented in the Fraunhofer-Gesellschaft information extraction tool ProMiner® which additionally disambiguates synonyms of entities to unique identifiers in public available entity databases. ProMiner® has been evaluated as one of the best tools ­regarding protein and gene detection at the 2004 and 2006 BioCreAtIve contest. Additionally non-enumerable entities like IUPAC names are found by a machine learning based ProMiner® plugin.
