Sophic Intelligence allows the user to formulate a relationship based query by entering terms in two “Google-like” windows. Enter terms in window one and related terms in window two followed by a date range. Sophic Intelligence generates an “all against all” parser on the fly and launches the query across both structured and unstructured data sources.
Query results are displayed in heatmaps showing the frequency of the co-occurrence of related objects terms such as genes or NCI thesaurus. This highlights the “density” of information retrieved from across disparate sources and it shows “green fields,” where there is little or no information on a pair of terms. The numbers of co-occurrences in the table are linked to the source. Below the heatmap is a table with Pairs of Related Terms and a link to the source of the information.
The sources of information for a related pair, DKK1 and Breast carcinoma, are shown with evidence from text mining and the Cancer Gene Index project.
The sentences view presents the sentences that contain the co-occurrence of the terms from the query results. This view allows you to click on the link to get to the full abstract in Medline.
The Cancer Gene Index (CGI) evidence view presents the number of CGI relations between DKK1 and Breast Carcinoma from the query results. This view shows the evidence from the CGI project and allows to access full abstract from Medline.
