BACKGROUND Research scientists and companies working in the domains of biomedicine and genomics are increasingly faced with the problem of efficiently locating, within the vast body of published scientific findings, the critical pieces of information that are needed to direct current and future research investment. RESULTS In this report we describe(More)
We describe a system for the detection of mentions of protein-protein interactions in the biomedical scientific literature. The original system was developed as a part of the OntoGene project, which focuses on using advanced computational linguistic techniques for text mining applications in the biomedical domain. In this paper, we focus in particular on(More)
In this article, we describe the architecture of the OntoGene Relation mining pipeline and its application in the triage task of BioCreative 2012. The aim of the task is to support the triage of abstracts relevant to the process of curation of the Comparative Toxicogenomics Database. We use a conventional information retrieval system (Lucene) to provide a(More)
The large increase in the size of patent collections has led to the need of efficient search strategies. But the development of advanced text-mining applications dedicated to patents of the biomedical field remains rare, in particular to address the needs of the pharmaceutical & biotech industry, which intensively uses patent libraries for competitive(More)
We present an electronic capture tool to process informed consents, which are mandatory recorded when running a clinical trial. This tool aims at the extraction of information expressing the duration of the consent given by the patient to authorize the exploitation of biomarker-related information collected during clinical trials. The system integrates a(More)
In Biomedicine, provision of high-quality knowledge in terms of terminologies and consistent cross-references is a cornerstone for information retrieval, information extraction, text mining and federation of data repositories. Since the late 90 s we have been building knowledge resources to support these tasks. Over the years, we have gathered valuable(More)
A comparison is made between cerebral evoked potentials through the left and right eye by studying the correlation functions between the two visual responses obtained. Two values were retained: the correlation coefficient CO which shows the degree of similarity between the two curves, and the phase displacement D which indicates the duration for which a(More)
