Go PubMed - What, Who, Where and When.

I have just come across a new search application called Go PubMed at http://www.gopubmed.org/.

It uses the content of PubMed which is familiar to many of us, but enables more complex searches via a "semantic search engine", which it is claimed reduces search time by up to 90%. Relevant hits are sorted into top level categories What, Who, Where and When enabling searches based on both content and metadata.

It is made by Transinsight and, in my opinion and on a quick and dirty test, does meet its claims. I will be using this one again.
