A novel system for detecting relationships between biological entities, as published in the literature. AlmaInteraction is a very valuable tool for aiding in the tedious and time-consuming task of gathering the information published in the literature. AlmaInteraction displays the knowledge associated to a gene, a protein, a pathway, etc. Some examples of possible uses of the system include:

  • Knowing the described relationships for a given entry.

  • Assesing the importance of a relationship.

  • Distinguish the type of relation (interaction, activation, repression, etc.)

  • Reconstructing pathways in base to bibliographic information.

  • Structure the knowledge according to year of study, authors, etc.

AlmaInteraction can be combined with AlmaTextMiner, producing a powerful system for biological analysis from knowledge sources.
