uBio RSS Sample Applications - uBioRSS

uBioRSS is a taxonomically intelligent RSS aggregator.

Two applications are derived from an idea originally conceived by Dr. Roderic Page of the Univ. of Glasgow that draw upon text-matching algorithms in conjunction with RSS feeds provided by academic publishers.

The application collects hundreds of RSS feeds from academic publishers, science news sites, and other sources. uBio Taxonomic Name Recognition algorithms parse the RSS and associated links, identifying taxonomic names within the content. The collection of names is then super-imposed on different taxonomies to organize thousands of journal articles.

Users can create profiles to customize species lists and feeds in order to create their own RSS feeds.

What people are saying about it...
"...a beautiful piece of work" Science Library Pad, 29 Mar. 2006
"Very Intelligent use of taxonomy and RSS feeds" Really Simple Sidi, 30 Mar. 2006
"...immediate value add for researchers..." All My Eye, 16 Feb. 2006

A second, derivative application, uBioRSS.Novum parses incoming RSS feeds for new nomenclatural declarations such as new species or new combinations. This application provides a mechanism for the uBio Taxonomic Name Recognition algorithms to automatically update their dictionaries with new names. It also provides a similar function for adding names and citations to NameBank. We are exploring methods for integrating these new names within a browseable taxonomic context so that we might merge the two applications.
