ClusterMed - website clusters PubMed search results

You are invited to use a website (ClusterMed) that clusters your top
200 PubMed search results into meaningful hierarchical folders:

http://vivisimo.com/clustermed

This lets you:

- Easily find articles much further down the chronological list. 
- View similar articles within a folder, not scattered in a list. 
- Quickly grasp the main themes relating to the subject of the query. 
- Re-cluster by MeSH headings alone, authors, affiliation, or date. 
- Drill down from the topic hierarchy

ClusterMed sends your query unchanged to PubMed. Clustering is
performed on the text in the article titles, abstracts, and MeSH terms
(when available) within PubMed's pseudo-XML output. The rich PubMed
syntax is preserved, so a query such as Smith JB [au] AND 2001 [dp]
would return articles by JB Smith in 2001, just as if the query were
done at PubMed alone.
