In catching up with my reading lists of 2007 I was alerted to gopubmed via Deepak’s post. Gopubmed described itself as an ontology based literature search making use of both the Gene ontology and Mesh terms. There is also the ability to provide feedback or rather act as a curator for the search results. I have already noticed some mis-match in author details. In general though the interface is a vast improvement on pubmed’s tiered interface and the ability to refine the searches looks interesting. I have added gopubmed to my search engines within firefox and will have a play to see if it is any good. RSS feeds on search terms would be top of the wish list. Anybody used it in anger?
