Creator: Yu, Wei; et al.
Abstract: The HuGE Literature Finder is one component of the HuGE Navigator, an integrated, searchable knowledge base of genetic associations and related information in human genome epidemiology. In 2001, HuGENet launched the HuGE Published Literature database (HuGE Pub Lit), a continually updated and accessible knowledge base on the World Wide Web that tracks the growing published literature of human genome epidemiologic studies. HuGE Pub Lit offers a starting point for assembling articles for meta-analysis, highlighting research gaps, suggesting applied research questions, and identifying potential collaborators. HuGE Pub Lit contains links to abstracts on PubMed that meet the inclusion and exclusion criteria (see below). HuGENet research staff is responsible for extracting relevant articles from PubMed and entering them into the HuGE Pub Lit database on a weekly basis. Since June 2007, a new automatic HuGE literature screening – GAPscreener was implemented to assist the weekly HuGE literature scanning from PubMed. The sensitivity of HuGE literature screening performance can reach 97.5%. An average of 500 new articles per week is retrieved by GAPscreener. A researcher who is familiar with the eligibility criteria for human genome epidemiology then reviews each title and abstract (or in a few cases, the full text). This researcher decides whether the study will be included in the database and, if it will, assigns indexing for each article. HuGE Literature Finder is a newly-designed HuGE Pub Lit database that utilizes the Unified Medical Language System (UMLS) as an indexing mechanism. [Information of the supplier]
