Linguamatics partners with ChemAxon on chemical text mining
Linguamatics has announced a partnership with ChemAxon that sees the latter's substructure and structure similarity search capabilities being integrated into the I2E semantic knowledge-discovery platform. This technology integration addresses the problem of identifying key facts and relationships from text documents for structurally-similar chemical compounds. This new capability will be available in the upcoming I2E 3.1 release.
The provision of chemical structure similarity and substructure-enabled text mining enhances I2E's existing ontology-based compound searching. Users can query for chemical compounds in text documents, examine relevant facts and relationships, and visualize the hits. The ability to combine structure mining with other textual and numeric information adds significant value for a range of applications such as lead identification, safety/tox, chemogenomics, and patent analysis.
