This is the second webinar in our series EMBL-EBI, programmatically.

Europe PMC is an global open repository, providing access to biomedical literature, including articles, books, patents, and clinical guidelines. More than 32 million abstracts (27 million from PubMed) and 4 million full-text articles can be freely accessed through Europe PMC in a single search.

In this webinar we will introduce the Europe PMC Articles RESTful API and show you how to access publications and related information, such as citations, data links, or text-mined terms programmatically.

This webinar took place on Tuesday 23rd May 2017. You can watch the recording and download the slides in Train online.

There are several other webinars in this series. They include an introduction to programmatic access and three other resource-based webinars featuring Ensembl, UniProt, PDBe, ChEMBL and EMBL-EBI sequence analysis tools that demonstrate how to perform key biological tasks programmatically. You do not need to watch all of the webinars; you can dip in and out and watch only the webinars you are interested in.
