Open-i service provides search and retrieval of abstracts and images (including charts, graphs, clinical images, etc.) from the open source literature, and biomedical image collections. Searching may be done by text queries as well as by query images.
MeSH on Demand identifies MeSH Terms in your text using the NLM Medical Text Indexer (MTI) program. After processing, MeSH on Demand returns a list of MeSH Terms relevant to your text as well as a list of related articles from PubMed.
This genetic variation services interconvert and transform short genetic variants between HGVS expressions, VCF format, and the new SPDI (Sequence Position Deletion Insertion) format, based on alignment datasets used by ClinVar and dbSNP. NOTE: This service is still in beta testing mode
SNOMED CT is one of a suite of designated standards for use in U.S. Federal Government systems for the electronic exchange of clinical health information and is also a required standard in interoperability specifications of the U.S. Healthcare Information Technology Standards Panel.
An interface for building applications that allows users to combine functions of various NLM drug APIs, including the RxNorm, RxClass, RxTerms, and NDF-RT APIs. Sequences of functions can be executed interactively or in batch mode.
The MEDLINE/PubMed Baseline Repository (MBR) provides access to each MEDLINE/PubMed Baseline snapshot starting with the 2002 MEDLINE Baseline. Each baseline contains a snapshot of MEDLINE citations in the state they were at a given moment in time without the MeSH vocabulary updates and other revisions that occur during the year. The baseline snapshot is created at the beginning of each new MeSH Indexing Year. The records included in the MEDLINE/PubMed Baseline databases represent a static view of the data at the time each baseline database was created.
A system for producing indexing recommendations to assist in the indexing process at NLM. Currently provides indexing recommendations to more than 100 journals based on the NLM Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) vocabulary.
MTI is the main product of the Indexing Initiative project and has been providing indexing recommendations based on the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH®) vocabulary since 2002. In 2011, NLM expanded MTI's role by designating it as the first-line indexer (MTIFL) for a few journals; today the MTIFL workflow includes over 350 journals and continues to increase. The close collaboration of the NLM Index Section, Lister Hill National Center for Biomedical Communications, and Office of Computer & Communications Systems continues to expand and refine the ability of MTI to provide assistance to the indexers.
MedGen is NCBI's portal to information about conditions and phenotypes related to Medical Genetics. Terms from the NIH Genetic Testing Registry (GTR), UMLS, HPO, Orphanet, ClinVar and other sources are aggregated into concepts, each of which is assigned a unique identifier and a preferred name and symbol. The core content of the record may include names, identifiers used by other databases, mode of inheritance, clinical features, and map location of the loci affecting the disorder. The concept identifier (CUI) is used to aggregate information about that concept, similar to the way NCBI Gene serves as a gateway to gene-related information.
MedGen provides links to such resources as: Genetic tests registered in the NIH Genetic Testing Registry (GTR), GeneReviews, ClinVar, OMIM, Related genes, Disorders with similar clinical features, Medical and research literature, Practice guidelines, Consumer resources, Ontologies such as HPO and ORDO.
Links to the GTR, GeneReviews, and Practice Guidelines are based on curation by NCBI staff. Other data feeds are automated, but reviewed by NCBI staff and informed by feedback from the community.
An online edition of XML-encoded speeches, articles, and Congressional Appropriations testimonies by former NLM director Martin M. Cummings, based on the collection of his papers in HMD’s Modern Manuscripts collection.
