How Text-Mining Positively Impacts Early Stage Discovery

Posted on March 29th, 2016 by in Pharma R&D


Colleagues, as most of you know, text mining is the process to derive high quality structured information from unstructured text, and its application can be very beneficial in semi-automating rapid finding of facts and relationships. Scientific abstracts are invaluable high-quality summaries for researchers. However, many facts and observations are often excluded from abstracts, appearing only within the body of the full-text article.

By combining text mining and full-text corpuses, researchers can find richer sets of results, particularly for types of information that may be underrepresented in abstracts, such as specific molecular targets.
