So I was looking into the new browser/viewer that's been integrated into Elsevier's papers. There was some discussion of it on our blog yesterday. But it's got me thinking about what would be really useful for taking data in a paper further, more easily and fluidly.
What tools and features would you want in an app from publishers that would make the lives of bioinformatics folks easier?
For me, better text mining tool integration would be great. I can't even believe how bad the search is just for authors sometimes. I like the idea of gene lists too, which could be quickly obtained in one fell swoop and used with other tools. It also stuns me that "big data" sets are not always easily linked to where they can be found in a live browser.
