We introduce PubTator, a web-based application that enables large-scale semantic indexing and automatic concept recognition in biomedical ontologies. Not only was PubTator formally evaluated and top-rated in BioCreative, it also has been widely adopted and used by the scientific community from around the world, supporting both research projects and real-world applications in biocuration, crowdsourcing and translational bioinformatics.
