Tox Town

Wednesday, May 13th, 2015

The National Library of Medicine (NLM) Tox Town Town neighborhood now has a new photo-realistic look. The location and chemical information remains the same, but the new graphics allow users to better identify with real-life locations. The Town scene is available in HTML5, allowing it to be accessed on a variety of personal electronic devices, including cell phones (iphones and androids), ipads, ipad minis, and tablets. Tox Town uses color, graphics, sounds and animation to add interest to learning about connections between chemicals, the environment, and the public’s health. Visit the updated Town neighborhood and learn about possible environmental health risks in a typical town.

Semantic MEDLINE Webinar Wednesday, May 20

Monday, May 11th, 2015

We are pleased to have two guest speakers for our webinar next week. MarceloFiszman, MD, PhD, Research Scientist, and Michael J Cairelli, DO, Medical Informatics Postdoctoral Fellow, both from the NLM Cognitive Science Branch at the Lister Hill Center for Biomedical Communications, will present their work on Semantic MEDLINE. Semantic MEDLINE is a very exciting tool used for literature based discovery.

Semantic MEDLINE  is a web application developed by the National Library of Medicine that summarizes MEDLINE citations. Natural language processing methods are used to extract semantic predications from titles and abstracts. Predications are presented in a graph that links to MEDLINE citations.

The webinar will be from 10:30 to 11:30am CST, Wednesday, May 20. Read more on our SCR CONNECTions page.
