NextBio life science search engine

NextBio has released a free version of the NextBio life science search engine to the general public.

Using NextBio, any researcher or clinician can search the world's public life sciences data and literature – more than 10,000 experiments, 16 million articles, and literally billions of data points

Users can also import their own experimental data into the NextBio search engine, share it with the community, and collaborate with others as never before; find topics of interest quickly with an intelligent semantic auto-complete search feature; make correlations across six species, enabling exploration of animal models relative to human studies; search NextBio to validate or generate novel hypotheses prior to investing in new experiments; understand their own study results by correlating them with the world's collective experimental data and create their own user profiles to more easily collaborate with scientists around the world.
