Future CTD manual curation workflow. Articles will continue to be identified for curation using PubMed and chemical terms of interest. Articles will be text mined using chemical (OSCAR 3), gene (ABNER) and disease (MetaMap) identifiers as described. Actors identified by text mining will be matched against vocabularies in CTD and journal articles without matches will be removed. Remaining journal articles will be ranked and loaded into the CTD curation database. Biocurators will curate or reject journal articles using an online application tool that is integrated with the CTD curation and production databases. Curated data will be approved and loaded into the CTD production database.
