We introduce the problem of detecting Entity Instantiations, a type of entity relation in which a set of entities is introduced, and either a member or subset of this set is mentioned afterwards. We perform the first, reliable, corpus study of Entity In-stantiations, concentrating on intersenten-tial annotation. We then develop the first automatic(More)
We apply tree kernels to entity instantiations. An entity instantiation is an entity relationship, in which a set of entities is mentioned, and then a member or subset of this set is introduced. We present the first reliably annotated intrasentential entity instantiation corpus, along with an extension to the intersentential annotations in McKinlay and(More)
Very little is known about the role of epigenetics in the differentiation of a bacterium from the free-living to the symbiotic state. Here genome-wide analysis of DNA methylation changes between these states is described using the model of symbiosis between soybean and its root nodule-forming, nitrogen-fixing symbiont, Bradyrhizobium diazoefficiens.
