This website is for the BioLINK Special Interest Group associated with the Intelligent Systems for Molecular Biology conference, organized annually by the International Society of Computational Biology.
BioLINK stands for “Linking Literature, Information and Knowledge for Biology”. The Special Interest Group is primarily focused on the methods and application of text mining and knowledge discovery from text for biological understanding and translational informatics.
The BioLINK SIG meeting has been regularly held in association with the ISMB conference since 2001, focusing on the development and application of resources and tools for biomedical text mining. The SIG is interdisciplinary in nature focusing on the community of users, including biomedical experimentalists, researchers and database curators, who are interested in using text mining methods as part of their tools.
This website is co-sponsored by National Information and Communications Technologies Australia (NICTA) and the Health and Biomedical Informatics Centre of the University of Melbourne, maintained by Karin Verspoor at the University of Melbourne.
