BioText Search engine

This is a super-cool way to search PubMed Central.

Developed as part of the BioText project at the University of California, Berkeley, the BioText Search Engine is a freely available Web-based application that provides biologists with new ways to access the scientific literature.

The interface has been carefully designed according to usability principles and techniques. Three views allow different types of browsing:

* Abstracts (List View): Allows users to search over titles, abstracts and authors. Returns a list of abstracts showing the figures associated with each article.
* Captions (List View): Allows users to search over captions. Returns a list of captions and their figures.
* Captions (Grid View): Allows users to search over captions. Returns figures and truncated captions in a grid arrangement.

Go try it.
