We present a new method for improving the efficiency of information extraction systems applied to biological literature, using the correlation between structural and functional classifications of gene products. The method evaluates extracted information by checking if gene products from a common family match a common set of biological properties. To evaluate the method, we implemented it in a case-study, where the method annotated carbohydrate-active enzymes with functional properties extracted… CONTINUE READING
