Active Motif has launched bioalma’s new Knowledge Application Programming Interface (KAPI) for the latest text mining system, AKS2. This programming library, based on Java, enables software developers to have high-level access to the AKS2 information in a structured and direct way.

The interface is able to present and analyze the AKS2 information in a very versatile and flexible way, facilitates the integration with other biomedical software, and is able to utilise the AKS2 information for different types of bioinformatics processes. It is easy for developers to implement a script that can perform both sequence similarity searches with Blast and then disease searches, using AKS2, based on the Blast hits.
