Biologists! There are currently 20,000 biomedical papers published every single week – more than anyone can keep track of. On top of that, there is useful data released alongside many of those papers. We all know that staying up to date is crucial to our research, but with so much data coming out at once, this is not a trivial task.
Nowomics is a free online resource made by a Cambridge-based team committed to solving this problem. Through our website you can follow your favourite genes or biological processes, and we will bring you a news feed of updates on your topics of interest. This includes new research papers, as well as data on new disease links, functions and interactions.
After months of developing sophisticated text mining to bring you the most relevant updates fast, we are releasing our tool to a limited number of early users, and we need your help to make it awesome.
1. Go register at http://nowomics.com/early-access
