Genomic Publications Grow Exponentially Of the 1,086,583 new articles published on PubMed in 2016, over 45% related to molecular medicine. To be more precise, 491,085 scientific articles were published in 2016 with a gene name in the title or abstract as listed in PubMed. The number of new genomic articles published in 2016 was over … Continue reading PubMed Added 490K Genomic Articles in 2016
The challenge of translating genomic knowledge from the medical literature into clinical insight to drive diagnostic decisions is the focus of Genomenon's poster presentation at AGBT (Advances in Genome Biology and Technology) 2017 General Meeting this week in Hollywood Florida. Mark Kiel MD, PhD will be presenting "Mastermind: An Automated Genomic Knowledge Harvesting and Genomic … Continue reading An Automated Genomic Knowledge Base
Next Generation Sequencing has unleashed unprecedented growth of genomic knowledge. The exponential growth of genomic literature seen since 1980 makes it more & more difficult for clinical pathologists and geneticists to keep up with the new variants uncovered and documented through research. The figure above shows the number of articles in PubMed that have "gene", … Continue reading Human Curation of Genomic Variants – An Intractable Problem
For the last 3 years, the Genomenon team has been developing Mastermind - a comprehensive knowledge base of genomic variants curated from primary medical literature. So far Mastermind has read 3.25 full text articles and found every disease-gene-variant combination discussed in the scientific literature covering somatic cancer, hereditary cancer, cardiomyopathy, and infertility. And we've just gotten started!
