Abstract

Biomedical literature represents one of the largest and fastest growing collections of unstructured biomedical knowledge and finding critical information buried in the literature remains a huge challenge in biomedical research. With the development of a web-based application, Mark2Cure (http://mark2cure.org), volunteer citizen scientists can identify key entities in the text and aid researchers in extracting critical information from biomedical publications. This defines a new and valuable entry point for citizen science in the biomedical research space
