Nanoinformatics

Short Summary

Automated method to generate repositories of bionanoinformatics resources and toxic secondary effects of nanoparticles and classify them for their application in clinical trials in nanomedicine During the last years Web-based repositories of bioinformatics resources have been built to facilitate their access to researchers of the area.

Until now, these systems have been developed and updated manually. The development of nanomedicine implies to access large amounts of information for R&D purposes. Then, the development of similar repositories will be needed.

In this proposal, we present an automated method for the semantic annotation of bionanomedical resources (such as nanoinformatics tools or nanoparticles) and the search of nanoparticle information (such as characterization and secondary toxic effects) in the scientific literature.

Annotation and search is made from textual descriptions of the resources extracted from PUBMED and the ISI Web of Knowledge.
