Digital Science creates Dimensions platform for Life Sciences and Chemistry research space
Digital Science, a technology company with a vision of a trusted and collaborative research ecosystem, is offering a new version of its popular Dimensions platform: Dimensions Life Sciences & Chemistry (Dimensions L&C)—focused on life sciences and chemistry research activities.
Dimensions L&C analyzes more than 120 million scientific publications, millions of patents, grants, and clinical trial documents, according to the vendor.
It is both larger than other databases, and unlike traditional manually curated tools, applies up-to-the-minute semantic text analysis tools and ontologies, providing powerful up-to-date discovery functionality previously unavailable at such scale.
Users can search for small molecules, chemical reactions and gene sequences, validate biomarkers, understand disease mechanisms and identify drug targets.
They can also quickly discover relevant chemical information in broader life sciences and chemistry research areas working with a chemistry structure editor and a biosequence search for nucleotides and proteins.
Different from other products, data is identified in full-text documents on a daily basis, creating a highly comprehensive and up-to-date resource.
Digital Science recently announced a collaboration with OntoChem and uses ontologies from OntoChem, which include around 40 million concepts and 100 million synonyms from more than 35 knowledge domains such as compounds, proteins, diseases, drugs, materials, methods, devices or species, enabling a high quality, context sensitive knowledge discovery tool.
Dimensions is used by scientists, academic institutions, funders, and industry. Its database offers the most comprehensive collection of linked data in a single platform; from grants, publications, datasets and clinical trials to patents and policy documents.
