Genome Biol. 2008;9(6):R96. doi: 10.1186/gb-2008-9-6-r96. Epub 2008 Jun 12.


Anni 2.0 is an online tool ( to aid the biomedical researcher with a broad range of information needs. Anni provides an ontology-based interface to MEDLINE and retrieves documents and associations for several classes of biomedical concepts, including genes, drugs and diseases, with established text-mining technology. In this article we illustrate Anni's usability by applying the tool to two use cases: interpretation of a set of differentially expressed genes, and literature-based knowledge discovery.
