Text mining can be an effective solution for retrospective analysis of the literature, but an equally important problem is the quick triage and discovery of new information as it arises. One valuable use is rapid alerts on information around new targets of interest to particular therapeutic areas, diseases, pathways; critical in target discovery and prioritization. We will describe a system for alerting that uses I2E’s capabilities of automation, through scripted indexing and API-based search, and combines them with a database for cross-article comparisons.
