New publication on advanced text mining approaches to early drug target discovery

In collaboration with Novo Nordisk, Intomics recently published “Semantic text mining in early drug discovery for type 2 diabetes” in PLOS ONE, about application of text mining in early drug discovery. The paper describes a project where we ranked proteins according to disease relevant contexts from scientific literature, and then identified potential novel targets by looking for ‘high jumpers’, i.e. proteins that were recently mentioned in increasingly relevant disease contexts.
