Data Sources and Links

One of the more unique features of PolySearch 2.0 is its integration of multiple databases containing both free-text and database record. Currently PolySearch 2.0 can search and extract data from six free-text corpora and more than a dozen biomedical databases including MEDLINE/PubMed, PubMed Central, Wikipedia, US Patent application database (USPTO), DailyMed, NCBI Books, OMIM, SwissProt, DrugBank, the Human Metabolome Database (HMDB), DrugBank, FooDB, yeast metabolite database (YMDB), MedlinePlus, E. coli metabolite database (ECMDB) the Human Protein Reference Database (HPRD), the Genetic Association Database (GAD), Kyoto Encyclopedia of Genes and Genomes (KEGG), Curated metabolic pathway database (MetaCyc). Below is a short description of each database with links.
