Infotrieve, Inc. has announced plans to launch its new Web-based search and discovery research environment, the Life Science Research Center (LSRC), later this month. The LSRC is designed to simplify scientists' daily workflow by providing a robust user interface to search diverse types of scientific, technical, and medical (STM) information and to identify relationships across traditionally disparate sources of content. The LSRC will use full-text searching of pre-processed STM content such as literature, patents, drug pipeline data, genes, technical protocols, laboratory products, and industry news.
In addition to full-text searching and the identification of relationships through entity extraction and concept clustering, the Life Science Research Center features secure meta-searching of external and internal corporate data sources, personalization for individuals and collaborative workgroups, and search capabilities. The LSRC is the latest addition to Infotrieve's electronic research platform. Infotrieve is currently integrating the Infotrieve Electronic Laboratory Notebook (ELN) with the LSRC, as well as literature retrieval, and laboratory product purchasing.
