Science apps n more

Couple of useful apps from Science Direct that crossed the desk this morning:

 AcroMine automatically recognises biomedical acronyms and provides their expanded forms (definitions) - and vice versa. AcroMine is based on an acronym dictionary automatically built from MEDLINE. It can also be used to search for variant expansions of an acronym.

  The Protein Interaction Browser visualizes the protein interactions that are reported in the Structured Summaries of the online articles of the Elsevier FEBS Letters journal. The proteins whose interactions are described in the article are drawn as blue nodes connected by yellow edges and displayed in relation to the global interactome.
