Description: Kino is an integrated suite of tools that enables scientists to annotate biological related web-based documents. It can annotate documents by accessing NCBO ontologies.Kino consists of an NCBO integrated front-end that allows the convenient annotation and submission of web documents through a browser plug in, and an annotation aware back-end, capable of providing faceted search capabilities. These annotations have a variety of uses, ranging from extended search capabilities to advanced data mining. Annotated documents are indexed using a faceted indexing and search engine that provides fine-grained search capabilities to the scientists. Thus, Kino is a comprehensive architecture for annotating and indexing Biological oriented documents that should be of great use for the biological and biomedical community.
