In an attempt to identify articles of interest amongst the background ‘noise’, LifeArc’s Scientific Horizon Scanning Team members used to manually scan through PubMed, grant information and a range of biotech-focussed news websites for potentially interesting articles. This process was resource intensive, limiting the coverage, depth and frequency of review possible.
To provide the foundation for semantic enrichment and to complement SciBite’s existing vocabularies, we created several new vocabularies containing bespoke terms tailored to LifeArc’s business, including those relating to novelty and specific technologies such as biomarkers and diagnostics.
Multiple relevant terms and entities were combined to create semantic search patterns. To accommodate the reality that there are often multiple ways of describing the same thing, multiple patterns were aggregated into ‘bundles’ which can quickly and easily refined and run across the same data simultaneously. The number of patterns that match a piece of text and whether those matches are complementary or competing, provides a powerful and clear indicator of the relevance of search results.

Technological advancements exhibit varying degrees of longevity. Some are tried and trusted, enduring longer than others, while other technologies succumb to fleeting hype without attaining substantive fruition. One constant, in this dynamic landscape is the data.Read
Precision medicine is changing the way that we think about the treatment of disease, moving from broad-acting therapies to therapies tailored to the individual patient. This increasingly relies on real-world data (RWD), encompassing a diverse range of sources, spanning multi-omic molecular characterisation of the patient’s condition, clinical presentation, treatment, and broader medical histories.Read
