Yesterday’s Neat Science Thursday post was about the growing amount complex biomedical research and omics data that needs to be organized, integrated, and analyzed in order to be effectively applied. Similar issues apply to the growing volume of growing volume of biomedical research publications that take an increasing amount of time for researchers to thoroughly examine. The Net work of BioThings aims to:

    “structure biological knowledge by annotating BioThings (genes, proteins, mutations, diseases, and drugs) in biomedical research articles. We want to comprehensively annotate the mentions of these BioThings in research articles, and also want to describe the nature of the relationships between these entities. Finally, we want to do it in roughly real-time (within one week of publication)”.
