Improving the Inter-Corpora Compatibility for protein Annotations

Abstract

Although there are several corpora with protein annotation, incompatibility between the annotations in different corpora remains a problem that hinders the progress of automatic recognition of protein names in biomedical literature. Here, we report on our efforts to find a solution to the incompatibility issue, and to improve the compatibility between two representative protein-annotated corpora: the GENIA corpus and the GENETAG corpus. In a comparative study, we improve our insight into the two corpora, and a series of experimental results show that most of the incompatibility can be removed.
