CAS STNext® coffee lecture: Searching for biological species in CAS STNext

Time: 15:00 CET (9:00 a.m. EST/3:00 p.m. CET) Length: 15 minutes

This coffee lecture will focus on biological species in CAS STNext®. Biological species such as pathogens are typical search subjects in the pharma, biotech, and crop protection domains. CAS STNext patent and biomedical databases, including CAplus and EMBASE, provide a controlled vocabulary for the biological classification system. The hierarchy within these curated keyword lists allows users to precisely retrieve results related to a particular taxonomic level such as the species and optionally include lower or higher ranks.

This session will provide an overview of the most relevant databases and their organism hierarchies, present related search examples, and add tips for setting up keyword strategies.
