Biological events such as gene expression, regulation, phosphorylation, localization, and
protein catabolism play important roles in the development of diseases. Understanding the
association between diseases and genes can be enhanced with the identification of involved
biological events in this association. Although biological knowledge has been accumulated in
several databases and can be accessed through the Web, there is no specialized Web tool yet allowing for a query into the relationship among diseases, genes, and biological events. For this task, we developed DigSee to search Medline abstracts for evidence sentences describing that “genes” are involved in the development of “cancer” through “biological events”. DigSee is available through
