[…] here. it is not possible to use pre-tagged entities with the pipeline, be they the gold-standard corpus entities used in our evaluation, or those generated by a state-of-the-art tagger such as banner. moreover, in the case where the same protein name occurs more than once in a single sentence, the pipeline does not specify which of the names it has identified as providing evidence […]

[…] a curated tmvar corpus. some additional rare mutation mentions are handled in the post-processing module., dnorm. dnorm segments the given text into sentences and identifies disease mentions using banner []. the mentions are then normalized to disease concepts in mesh by finding the best match using a learning-to-rank technique []. finally the disambiguation related to primary disease […]

[…] klinger et al. () employed conditional random fields (crfs) to find the international union of pure and applied chemistry (iupac) and iupac-like chemical names; leaman and gonzalez () presented banner, which is an open-source biomedical named entity recognition system implemented using crfs; leaman et al. () developed a high performance chemical named entity recognizer created by combining […]

[…] texts are tokenised and syntactically parsed using the stanford parser (), and biomedical entities such as genes and proteins are identified using a biomedical named entity recognition (ner) module, banner (). then, anaphoric mentions such as pronouns, e.g. ‘it’, ‘its’ and ‘they’, and definite noun phrases containing domain-specific nouns, such as ‘the protein’ and ‘these genes’ are identified […]

[…] systems in the previous biocreative chemdner challenge (). the tmchem system is an ensemble system that combines the output of two crf-based systems. the first system is a modified version of the banner system (), the second is based on the tmvar system (), which employs crf ++ libraries ( previous results of tmchem showed that the second system outperformed […]

[…] superpathway of pyridoxal 5′-phosphate biosynthesis and salvage. the recall showed less than 70%, and the f-score showed less than 80%. these results seem to indicate that the entity tagger (i.e., banner) has a weakness in detecting metabolite entities in an abbreviated form (e.g., pyridoxine (pn), pyridoxal (pl), and 4-hydroxy-l-threonine phosphate (htp))., we evaluated the performance […]
