Biomedical Researchers to Benefit from New Partnership between Springer Nature and BenchSci


London – WEBWIRE

Springer Nature and BenchSci, a life science machine learning startup, have announced a new partnership designed to address the challenge millions of biomedical researchers face when searching for biological products for their research in scientific papers.

Up to 50% of biological products donít work when used in†experiments. †This contributes to the current reproducibility crisis. Life science product companies canít test every way their products might be used. So researchers review scientific papers for this information when planning experiments. But more than 38 million scientific papers have been published since 1980, and this number doubles†every nine years. †Searching papers for guidance is increasingly difficult.

The partnership announced today seeks to solve this problem by combining Springer Natureís rich database of biomedical journals and BenchSciís industry leading machine learning technology for biological products.

The licensing agreement will see papers from Springer Natureís biomedical journals decoded, indexed and displayed on BenchSci, an artificial intelligence discoverability platform that decodes scientific papers and extracts data related to proper use of biological compounds. This will make them more easily searchable and discoverable to scientists who search for biological compounds using BenchSci.

Commenting, Richard Jenis, Director of Global Third Party Licensing &
Rights and Permissions, from Springer Nature said: ďSix and a half million biomedical researchers face problems when searching scientific papers for biological products to aid their research. †I am delighted to partner with BenchSci and help the community in such a practical way by saving them hours of wasted time.Ē

Liran Belenzon, CEO, BenchSci said: ďToday, BenchSciís machine learning technology analyzes millions of scientific papers and 3.7 million antibodies from 300 vendors. Joining with Springer Nature will make papers from their over 200 relevant journals searchable on the platform. The more data available, the more useful BenchSci is for research scientists. This contributes to our mission of driving medical discoveries by helping scientists find the best tools for their experiments.Ē

Data from Springer Nature publications will be available on BenchSci in April 2018.
