ApoList – February 2020

Dear all,

Please allow me to advertise this service in case you want to do your personalized ApoList, or a weekly list of interesting articles on any topic. Biomed News (www.biomed.news) proposes you new records in PubMed every week, ranked by machine learning. You select your favorite items, they are sent to you via email, and you can then disseminate the weekly list yourself. Other users can browse it at  http://biomed.news/reports
