BIOSIS Releases MethodsFinder 2.0

BIOSIS (http://www.biosis.org) has announced the release of MethodsFinder 2.0 (http://www.methodsfinder.com), its Web database of laboratory methods for life-science researchers. "MethodsFinder 2.0 will give our customers access to thousands more full-text methods from Web pages and gray literature, tens of thousands more records in the database, and an enhanced search engine," said Linda Sacks, senior vice president of marketing and sales for BIOSIS.

Life-science researchers have turned to the Internet as a place to find and exchange laboratory techniques. As a result, more laboratory methods and related material are available on the Web than ever before. "Unfortunately, searching the Web can be tedious, and reliable results are often elusive," said Sacks. "MethodsFinder 2.0 provides a centralized location where users can expect to find methods and protocols from around the Web, expertly indexed and frequently updated." In addition, MethodsFinder 2.0 also maintains a growing archive of protocols from the traditional life-science literature.

The indexing, done by experienced life-science professionals, captures unique information, including method name, reagents used, and equipment used. It builds on the strength of BIOSIS' relational indexing, which is context-sensitive and uses natural language. Search options include simple and advanced searching, and a browsable index. The service is priced at a group or institutional level, with simultaneous logons. A 60-day, free trial subscription to the database is available.
