Text mining: Key concepts and applications


Jee-Hyub Kim and Senay Kafkas from the Literature Services team at EMBL-EBI present this talk on an introduction to text mining and its applications in service provision.

The 1st part of this talk focuses on what text mining is and some of the methods and available tools.

The 2nd part looks at how to find articles on Europe PMC - a free literature resource for biomedical and health researchers - and how to build your own text mining pipeline.

The final part gives a nice case study showing how Europe PMC's pipeline was integrated into a new drug target validation platform called Open Targets (previously CTTV).
