We are happy to introduce Wormicloud, a new tool that summarizes scientific articles in a graphical way through word clouds. This tool is aimed at facilitating the discovery of new experimental results not yet curated by model organism databases and is designed for both researchers and biocurators. Wormicloud is customized for the Caenorhabditis elegans literature and provides several advantages over existing solutions, including being able to perform full-text searches through Textpresso, which provides more accurate results than other existing literature search engines.
Wormicloud is integrated through direct links from gene interaction pages in WormBase. Additionally, it allows analysis on the gene sets obtained from literature searches with other WormBase tools such as SimpleMine and Gene Set Enrichment. URL: https://wormicloud.textpressolab.com.
You can also read the paper that describes Wormicloud.
The recording of the WormBase webinar “Parasite Biomart” is now available for viewing. Please check out this page for the relevant links to past and coming webinars as well as for webinar registration.
