BioSeek Reader is a browser extension for Mozilla Firefox which converts biological terms within unstructured text into explorable objects spot on. Each term is listed as a card on the side of your screen. All entities, such as genes, diseases, pathways, drugs, etc., related to the given term through articles, are presented in this card, organized in clickable groups. You can easily navigate further and explore connections without having to type and search.
BioSeek Reader conducts semantic analysis based on which all synonyms, aliases, and old names of a given entity are linked to each other, thus all documents containing any of these designations are retrieved and listed, not only documents containing full keyword matches. 
BioSeek Reader recognizes more than 60 million terms.

BioSeek Reader brings the analytical power of our searching algorithm to any web source- a database, an online journal, etc. This version is compatible with NCBI's Pubmed database, Nature Journal, and:

Risk impact

BioSeek Reader requires a number of risky permissions that can potentially harm your browser and steal your data. Exercise caution when installing this add-on. Review carefully before installing. We recommend that you only install BioSeek Reader if you trust the publisher.

Risk impact measures the level of extra permissions an extension has access to. A low risk impact extension cannot do much harms, whereas a high risk impact extension can do a lot of damage like stealing your password, bypass your security settings, and access your personal data. High risk impact extensions are not necessarily malicious. However, if they do turn malicious, they can be very harmful.

Risk likelihood

BioSeek Reader has earned a fairly good reputation and likely can be trusted.

Risk likelihood measures the probability that a Firefox add-on may turn malicious. This is determined by the publisher and the Firefox add-on reputation on Firefox Browser Add-ons, the amount of time the Firefox add-on has been around, and other signals about the Firefox add-on. Our algorithms are not perfect, and are subject to change as we discover new ways to detect malicious extensions. We recommend that you always exercise caution when installing a Firefox add-on, especially ones with higher risk impact and/or higher risk likelihood.
