PRESS RELEASE

AKS2

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.

Feature

Building a Smart Laboratory 2018 highlights the importance of adopting smart laboratory technology, as well as pointing out the challenges and pitfalls of the process

Feature

Informatics experts share their experiences on the implementing new technologies and manging change in the modern laboratory

Feature

This chapter will consider the different classes of instruments and computerised instrument systems to be found in laboratories and the role they play in computerised experiments and sample processing – and the steady progress towards all-electronic laboratories.

Feature

This chapter considers how the smart laboratory contributes to the requirements of a knowledge eco-system, and the practical consequences of joined-up science. Knowledge management describes the processes that bring people and information together to address the acquisition, processing, storage, use, and re-use of knowledge to develop understanding and to create value

Feature

This chapter takes the theme of knowledge management beyond document handling into the analysis and mining of data. Technology by itself is not enough – laboratory staff need to understand the output from the data analysis tools – and so data analytics must be considered holistically, starting with the design of the experiment
