Jo McEntyre is the Team Leader for Literature Services at EMBL-European Bioinformatics Institute (EMBL-EBI). The team currently run two life science literature databases: CiteXplore (over 25 million abstracts including PubMed, Agricola and Patent information) and UK PubMed Central, a full text database of 2.2 million articles. The literature databases are linked to public biological databases via curated links and useful terms (such as gene names, diseases, and organisms) that have been text mined from articles.
Before joining EMBL-EBI, Jo spent 11 years at the National Center for Biotechnology Information (NCBI), NIH in Bethesda, USA, where she was involved with several projects to make the biomedical literature available online and link it to public databases. Prior to this she was an editor for the journal Trends in Biochemical Sciences, published by Elsevier and based in Cambridge, England. Jo first trained as a biologist, and holds a PhD in plant cell biotechnology from Manchester Metropolitan University.
