PubMed-EX is a really interesting Firefox Add-on or Greasemonkey Script.

PubMed-EX is a browser extension that marks up PubMed search results with additional information retrieved from IISR & IASL text-mining services. PubMed-EX’s page mark-up includes section categorization, gene/disease name, and relation.

The mark-ups of PubMed-EX can help researchers quickly focus on key information in retrieved abstracts and can provide additional background information on key terms. Furthermore, our text-mining server carries out all text-mining processing, freeing up users’ resources.


Try this- it’s way cool.

  1. We have tried out PubMed-EX with Firefox 3.05, and find it very slow. Is this a known problem, or just a local problem associated to our servers?
