Literature Lab™ has been part of cutting-edge research. 

"Literature Lab is an easy to use automated functional analysis and data mining tool uniquely suited to uncover associations and co-occurrences among diseases, pathways, chemical actions, etc. in the literature. It was of great use to us in a recent study to uncover shared genetic etiology among allergic diseases”
