1 Databases Vasileios Hatzivassiloglou University of Texas at Dallas

2 Databases Massive independently developed databases Sponsored by national institutes of biology/bioinformatics/health in the U.S., Europe, and Japan Allow for search Allow for entry of information by researchers, subject to curation Cross-linked

3 GenBank Developed and maintained by the U.S. National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), part of the National Library of Medicine (NLM), which is part of the National Institutes of Health (NIH) Repository of gene information Provides DNA and literature search, comparison tools

4 GenBank statistics Dynamically updated A new version released as a flat file every two months Current version is 167.0 (15 August 2008) 92.7 (76.1/61.1 one/two years ago) million sequences 95.0 (79.5/65.3 one/two years ago) billion base pairs

8 SwissProt Maintained by the Swiss Institute for Bioinformatics Central repository of proteomic data Part of the Swiss ExPASy (Expert Proteomic Analysis System) Currently (Release 56.1, 2 Sept 2008) –397,500 (283,400 sequences one year ago) –143 million amino-acids (104 million one year ago)

9 SwissProt Growth

10 TrEMBL The non-curated counterpart to SwissProt Computer-annotated protein sequences awaiting curation Current release 39.2 (2 Sept 2008) 6.2 million proteins (4.7 million a year ago) 2 billion aminoacids (1.5 billion a year ago) SwissProt has entries for –only 6.5% of TrEMBL (6% a year ago)

16 PubMed Interface to MEDLINE, NLM’s searchable index of publications in the biomedical field More than 15 million records since the 1950’s Can retrieve abstracts and citation details, but not full text Organized via the MeSH metathesaurus

17 MeSH Controlled vocabulary of 24,700 subject headings or descriptors Each linked to synonymous entry terms (151,000 of those) Articles in Medline are indexed using subject headings; each gets 1-2 major and about 10 other MeSH terms During search, entry terms are mapped to descriptors and related terms are added to the query (query expansion)

18 Medline record example Disambiguating proteins, genes, and RNA in text: a machine learning approach.

Three machine learning algorithms and several extended ways for defining contextual features for disambiguation are examined, and a fully unsupervised manner for obtaining training examples is proposed. We train and evaluate our system over a collection of 9 million words of molecular biology journal articles, obtaining accuracy rates up to 85%.
