BioMedLib Review uses the 'semantic technology' developed by BioMedLib. For example, when you choose 'gene or genome' from the drop-down list, BMLR searches for over 500,000 unique gene names occuring in publications. This greatly simplifies the search for you, plus makes it possible to search for the 'class of all genes', which we call a 'semantic type'. There are over one hundred semantic types (however not all of them are equally useful for search).


 Notes 
The term "associated with" in the above examples means that the two entities co-occur in the same sentence or abstract (textual association). It does not necessarily imply causation, nor numerical association.

Some of the semantic types occur infrequently in the publications; then it gets harder to find many good results (and searching for keywords along with a semantic type will only make the counts smaller). For example, here are counts of the year 2012 publications which contain each semantic type in their title:
