PubMed Commons is an experimental system of commenting on PubMed abstracts, introduced in October 2013. Comments are displayed on the abstract page, but during the initial closed pilot, only registered users can read or post comments. Any researcher who is listed as an author of an article indexed by PubMed is entitled to participate in the pilot. If you would like to participate and need an invitation, please email, giving the PubMed ID of an article on which you are an author. For more information, see the PubMed Commons FAQ.

WikiPathways API

This is a nice comparative analysis of pathway databases. I would just point out that WikiPathways does in fact have an API. This can be used to extract pathway information in a much more efficient manner than presented in this article.

Details can be found here:

And an open access article describing the web service can be found here:
