Reports Outline Enzymes and Coenzymes Findings from University of Georgia

February 13, 2014

By a News Reporter-Staff News Editor at Computer Weekly News -- Researchers detail new data in Enzymes and Coenzymes. According to news reporting originating in Athens, Georgia, by VerticalNews journalists, research stated, "Effective tools for searching the biomedical literature are essential for identifying reagents or mouse strains as well as for effective experimental design and informed interpretation of experimental results. We have built the Textpresso Site Specific Recombinases (Textpresso SSR) Web server to enable researchers who use mice to perform in-depth searches of a rapidly growing and complex part of the mouse literature."

The news reporters obtained a quote from the research from the University of Georgia, "Our Textpresso Web server provides an interface for searching the full text of most of the peer-reviewed publications that report the characterization or use of mouse strains that express Cre or Flp recombinase. The database also contains most of the publications that describe the characterization or analysis of strains carrying conditional alleles or transgenes that can be inactivated or activated by site-specific recombinases such as Cre or Flp."

According to the news reporters, the research concluded: "Textpresso SSR complements the existing online databases that catalog Cre and Flp expression patterns by providing a unique online interface for the in-depth text mining of the site specific recombinase literature."
