DNAdigest is a charity that promotes efficient sharing of genomics data to advance scientific research.
We will use the tools of ContentMine to automatically extract references to genomic datasets from new journal publications. Then we can put them into a big machine-readable database that can be searched by interested humans and machines alike. We would love to have your expertise and help with this experiment!
But we also want to explore with you any other areas where automatic fact extraction could be useful.
Perhaps you work in a field where you have to manually transcribe data from graphs? Or perhaps you would like to scan open-access journals that are only available via the web for a particular word or phrase? ContentMine has tools to do all these things and more.
If you are interested in machine-mining journals, whether that is for genomic dataset DOIs, your own research or just out of general interest, please come along and join us! In-depth programming knowledge is not essential – ContentMine is designed to make mining easy and we will have ContentMine mentors there on the day to help you get familiar with the system.
Tickets include lunch and catering during the day.
