In order to make the ever-growing body of biomedical research literature more useful for EVERYONE, the Su Lab at The Scripps Research Institute has been working on a citizen science-based approach to annotate biomedical research abstracts. The idea is that Mark2Cure will enable anyone to help parse through and annotate biomedical research literature. In turn, citizen scientists can help break a major bottleneck in biomedical research and help researchers to more quickly find buried treasure in sifting sand.
