Charlottesville USA and Athens Greece. January 21, 2005

Biovista announced today it will be present at the Computers in Libraries 2005 conference, held in Washington, D.C., March 16-18, 2005.

Computers in Libraries is the leading conference for librarians and information professionals who need to know about the latest technologies, equipment, software, and services available.

Biovista will be showcasing its Systems Literature Analysis technology including the recently launched BioLab Experiment Assistant (BEA) system, its Literature-Based Discovery tool and others.

BEA is an information lifecycle support environment that allows librarians and researchers to share a common literature search and analysis resource. Rather than limiting the user to the traditional Boolean operator queries, BEA allows the user to navigate the bibliography using graphical maps of domain specific concepts (such as genes, pathways and diseases in the life sciences) and their correlations as these transpire from the underlying literature. A number of simple yet powerful tools allow the user to obtain a mental overview of a research area of interest and from that locate and access scientific articles of relevance.

BEA is especially suited to librarians who often have to answer ill defined information search requests from their clientele but also proactively disseminate relevant information that they have identified, created and packaged for them.
