1 hour including Q&A
Do you have the right tools for performing Genome Wide Association
Studies? Can you process a million SNPs across thousands of samples?
Are you still conducting your literature searches using Google? Do you
waste too much time reading irrelevant internal and external
documents? Attend this complimentary webcast and learn how to combine
literature mining and statistical genetics in a single, integrated
See and hear how:
InforSense GenSense can be used for genome wide association studies.
New knowledge from publications can be easily included in your
analyses using Linguamatics I2E.
Natural language processing can be used to provide the right
biomedical context for your searches.
Information mined from publications can be processed, visualized and
deployed by business users.
See these concepts demonstrated in an application that examines
genetic variability associated with Parkinson's disease and then
interprets these results by mining publications for information which
may help explain the nature of the relationship between the genetic
variation and the disease.

Linguamatics helps organizations to maximize the value derived from
information resources, through effective deployment of innovative
natural language processing (NLP) based technology. The versatile
interactive information extraction system, I2E, helps organizations to
do much more than simply cope with vast quantities of information. Its
unique combination of search and text mining helps organizations to
turn this information into a competitive advantage. From life sciences
and healthcare to business intelligence; from media analysis to
security, users mine large collections of documents, extracting
relevant facts and relationships from content such as scientific
papers, news feeds, patents, or business reports. Linguamatics was
founded in 2001, and is based in Cambridge, UK.
