Biology has now become an information science, and researchers are increasingly dependent on expert-curated biological databases to organize the findings from the published literature. We report here on a series of experiments related to the application of natural language processing to aid in the curation process for FlyBase. We focused on listing the normalized form of genes and gene products discussed in an article. We broke this into two steps: gene mention tagging in text, followed by… CONTINUE READING
