Abstract

In the Era of Information researchers have utilized the Web to make their knowledge readily available. The Web is an important tool to improve the communication in the research community. But, the large amounts of information available makes it difficult to access the information that is needed. We present SalamboMiner, a Text-Mining tool that helps biomedical researchers to obtain the information about the genetics of complex diseases which is in the published biomedical literature. The methodology is based in the idea of co-citation: the co-citation of two concepts gives the significance of the relationship between the pair of concepts. In addition, the co-citation allows to infer new relationships that are not explicitly said in the literature. By using a Bayesian network, we infer the significant relationships between those concepts that are co-cited in two steps.
