Biological patent annotations are now displayed on the SureChEMBL interface. In collaboration with Open PHACTS and SciBite, the EBI have implemented a mechanism to allow users to highlight biological entities (such as genes and diseases) within SureChEMBL patent documents. For more information see the SureChEMBL blog.



We are pleased to announce the release of version 1.5 of the Open PHACTS component collection. There are no major changes to the components, but this version is needed to connect to version 1.5 of the Open PHACTS API, which has refreshed data and several other improvements.
