The Bio-TDS (Bioscience Query Tool Discovery Systems) has been developed to assist researchers in retrieving the most applicable analytic tools by allowing them to formulate their questions as free text. It is a flexible retrieval system that affords users from multiple bioscience domains (e.g. genomic, proteomic, bio-imaging) the ability to query over 12 000 analytic tool descriptions integrated from well-established, community repositories. One of the primary components of the Bio-TDS is the ontology and natural language processing workflow for annotation, curation, query processing, and evaluation.Click here for more information.
