Description from store PubMed Genius is a simple search tool to make running queries on PubMed more convenient and quick. Often, you want to quickly get a refresher on a particular topic or term but you don't want to lose your place in the paper you're reading. You can simply click on the PubMed Genius icon in your toolbar to open a small popup window to run an abstract search for a particular term. If you'd like, you can drill down to the paper to take a closer look and when you're done, click back on your browser and the popup disappears. If you highlight a word on the page (of any website), right click and select the PubMed Genius menu item, you can run a search of the highlighted term in a new tab. It's that easy!

  • (2019-09-17) Miguel Villegas: I love this extension, saves me a lot of time. But the feature of the right click menu disappears every once in a while, I need to dissinstall and install again, several times a day. Could that be fixed :)?
