iScienceSearch is a
federated search service that retrieves chemical compound
information from a wide variety of databases (sources) on the
Internet. It is a two step process. If the users starts
with a structure, identifier (synonym, CAS #, AKos number, SMILES,
etc.) iScienseSearch tries to find in two sources alternative
synonyms, and identifiers. When the user clicks on "SEARCH", we
start in the background parallel sometimes several hundred searches.
In spite of this you get answers quickly, and you don't have to wait
until all the results are presented.
The result is that you
get correct answers in sources that can only be seached by CAS # ,
and the user started with a name, ot you get correct answers if you
started with "Tamiflu" and the hit only contains the name "Oseltamivir".
We call this the "extended
