General reviews and research highlights

  • Andrade-Navarro, M.A. 2012. Mining the literature: new methods to exploit keyword profiles. [Research highlight]. Genome Medicine. 8, 41.

Highlight of two papers from Cheung et al. that present a way to build profiles from MeSH terms in sets of MEDLINE abstracts and how to use those profiles to associate genes to diseases, respectively.

  • Andrade-Navarro, M.A. 2009. The dictionary of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics. [Book review]. Bioessays31, 1367-1369.

A review of "The dictionary of genomics, transcriptomics and proteomics" by Prof. Günter Kahl and published by Wiley-Blackwell. The book contains 12,000 terms in three volumes and +1800 pages, with the appropriate descriptive level, good illustrations, and opinions on term usage.

  • Andrade, M.A. 2001. Tools for automated protein annotation. In Protein Sequence Analysis in the Genomic Era. R. Casadio and L. Masotti (Eds.) Clueb, Bologna, Italy.

Three approaches to the problem of automatic protein function annotation.

  • Andrade, M.A. and C. Sander. 1997. Bioinformatics: from genome data to biological knowledge. Current Opinion in Biotechnology. 8, 675-683.

We reviewed the developments of the year '97 in Bioinformatics Methods from gene detection, and protein sequence analysis, to proteomics. Emphasis was done in pointing to web services where those methods coukd be used, and stored biological information could be accessed.
