GeneEd and Reel Two and GeneEd Launch Powerful Text-Mining Solution for the Life Science Industry

Advanced data mining software provider Reel Two and GeneEd, the leading Life Science e-learning provider have launched a powerful new text-mining tool for life sciences research. The Gene Ontology Knowledge Discovery System (GO KDS) is the first application designed to classify unstructured documents according to the widely used Gene Ontology. GO KDS has classified the full set of more than 12 million MEDLINE documents classified against the Gene Ontology terms. Researchers, drug developers, clinical research teams, and clinicians can now use this tool to find complex associations between specific gene functions and current research on diseases.

"GeneEd is honored to assist in delivering Reel Two's text mining expertise to such a knowledge-driven industry as Life Sciences," said Dr. Sunil Maulik, chief executive officer for GeneEd. "The combination of GeneEd's expertise in genomics, drug discovery, and clinical research and the tremendous text and data mining expertise of the Reel Two team has allowed both organizations to cooperatively deliver such a powerful and immediately useful scientific and medical information mining solution as GO KDS to the Life Science industry."

GO KDS is currently being evaluated by leading pharmaceutical and biotechnology customers. GO KDS is available as a hosted service, or can be installed behind the firewall. Custom implementations of GO KDS can also incorporate different public and proprietary taxonomies, which can be applied to text data from any source the client requires.
