TWEASE search engine

Posted by iskanbasal on July 25, 2007

“Twease is a web-based tool to search Medline™ at the abstract level. Twease indexes each word of Medline™ and provides features that can transparently expand your search to help find the information you are looking for.”

I have just finished exploring this search engine I recently met in the net. It has been created by the institute for computational biology and biomedicine at the The Weill Medical College of Cornell University. I found very easy and interesting the tutorial in which one can find a detailed description of how to use this tool. The interesting point is that Twease searches medline at the abstract level; this I understood from my first exploring. Abstracts of the articles are the main part of them where the terms should correspond to my specific interest. There are many other options to refine the results but as it is with the search tools one should use a specific tool for a long period of time to become familiar with it. This is Twease.

(escuse me my english errors) .
