Greetings, fellow wikipedians! I noticed that this stub didn't have a discussion page, while several people have contributed to this article. I'd love to get to know whoever else is interested in the subject. Even though the references so far are all centered around Hoffman/Valencia et al. , I'm surprised nobody brought up iHOP yet, so I added it as an example in a new section. Since I am currently writing a thesis on the subject of biomedical text mining, I expect to be able to give a much more complete view of the subject, and eventually lift the stub status of this article. My edits so far have been only a warming up. Ste1n 19:05, 17 April 2006 (UTC)

Examples, please?[edit]

Should this article not have one or two specfic examples where text mining advanced research, helped with drug dscovery, established the etiology of a disease? Are there any such examples in medicine / health? I doubt it[I have looked e.g. on PubMed]. The use of word clouds has been questioned, text mining produces nice stats and graphs but does it tell us anything new? BTW I am not talking about plagiarism detection...
