PubMed comprises more than 26 million citations for biomedical literature from MEDLINE, life science journals, and online books. Citations may include links to full-text content from PubMed Central and publisher web sites.
Not all articles in PMC are available for text mining and other reuse, many have copyright protection, however articles in the PMC Open Access Subset are made available for download under a Creative Commons or similar license that generally allows more liberal redistribution and reuse than a traditional copyrighted work.
The RxClass Browser is a web application for exploring and navigating through the class hierarchies to find the RxNorm drug members associated with each class.
RxClass links drug classes of several drug sources including ATC, MeSH, NDF-RT and FDA/SPL to their RxNorm drug members (ingredients, precise ingredients and multiple ingredients).
RxClass allows users to search by class name or identifier to find the RxNorm drug members or, conversely, search by RxNorm drug name or identifier to find the classes that the RxNorm drug is a member of.
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.
RxNorm provides normalized names for clinical drugs and links its names to many of the drug vocabularies commonly used in pharmacy management and drug interaction software, including those of First Databank, Micromedex, Gold Standard, and Multum. By providing links between these vocabularies, RxNorm can mediate messages between systems not using the same software and vocabulary.
RxTerms is a drug interface terminology derived from RxNorm for prescription writing or medication history recording (e.g. in e-prescribing systems, PHRs). RxTerms is derived only from the non-proprietary content of RxNorm, which is developed and maintained by the U.S. National Library of Medicine. No fee or license is required to use the RxTerms data.

The SKR Project was initiated at NLM in order to develop programs to provide usable semantic representation of biomedical free text by building on resources currently available at the library. The SKR project is concerned with reliable and effective management of the information encoded in natural language texts. The project develops programs that provide usable semantic representation of biomedical text by building on resources currently available at the Library, especially the UMLS knowledge sources and the natural language processing tools provided by the SPECIALIST system. This Java-based API to the Semantic Knowledge Representation (SKR) Scheduler facility was created to provide users with the ability to programmatically submit jobs to the Scheduler Batch and Interactive facilities instead of using the Web-based interface.
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
