    Description: The freely accessible iHOP service provides summary information on over 80,000 biological molecules by automatically extracting key sentences from millions of PubMed documents when a search is requested. It includes genes and chemical compounds, covering all organisms ranging from human and chimpanzee to yeast and HIV. The search tool allows scientists to extract comprehensive information on the function of genes in signaling pathways, interaction networks and biological processes. It also allows researchers to explore a network of gene interactions by directly navigating the pool of published scientific literature. iHOP selectively retrieves information that is specific to genes and proteins and summarizes their interactions and functions. The system adds value by filtering and ranking extracted sentences according to significance, impact factor, date of publication and syntax.
