OpenMinTeD press release
Does your work involve supporting researchers who are interested in Text and Data Mining (TDM)? Do you have an interest in the topic, but no coding or computer skills? Then this course may be interesting to you: OpenMinTeD and the University of Cambridge developed a free online course on text and data mining for 'non-tech people'.
The OpenMinTeD event titled ‘ Paving the way for text and data mining in science’ was successfully organized in Brussels on May 24th, 2018. It was an open invitation to all stakeholders (publishers as content providers, TDM experts, researchers and SMEs) of TDM in Europe. The structure of the event's agenda was carefully designed as to provide a full TDM experience and only focus on OpenMinTeD. Afterall, OpenMinTeD is a "TDM Hub" of TDM applications and components combined with open access content from open access aggregators.

The Bibliome group at the French National Institute for Agricultural Research (INRA) has developed a text-mining application that extracts fine information about seed development from thousands of texts. It gives scientists better and quicker access to how molecules, genes and proteins interact when a seed starts to grow.
