Semantic annotation in biomedicine: the current landscape

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 5610427
PMID: 28938912
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-017-0153-x

[…] method that relies on a knowledge base built by leveraging a large database of (over 100 K) MEDLINE abstracts annotated with GO terms []. In particular, the tool developed by this team, known as the GOCat tool, relies on similarities between an input text and already curated instances in the tool’s knowledge base, to annotate the input with the most prevalent GO terms among the instances from the […]


Gene Ontology synonym generation rules lead to increased performance in biomedical concept recognition

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 5018193
PMID: 27613112
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-016-0096-7

[…] ty, and similarity to calculate the score of GO term t appearing in zone z. They report average precision and recall of 0.34 for the terms at rank 1 on the BioCreative I corpus. A more recent system, GOCat [], combines semantic similarity and a machine learning based k-NN algorithm to return the most similar k GO concepts in some text. On the Biocreative I corpus, GOCat reports 0.56 precision at r […]

[…] icantly up-regulated in β°-thalassemia/Hb E patients belonged to a number of cellular processed including oxidative phosphorylation and energy metabolism (Table B in ). Ontological analysis using the GoCat software [] showed that most of the differentially expressed proteins were involved in cellular processes (30%), regulation (17%) and metabolic processes (8%) as shown in . Functional categoriza […]

[…] replacing the carbon source for glutamine with the synthesis of acetyl CoA, citrate, and fatty acids under anaerobic conditions [,]. Nitrogen assimilation via glutamine (GS) and glutamate synthetase (GOCAT) has been suggested to be a metabolic signal regulating both nitrogen and carbon metabolisms, this requires 2-oxoglutarate as a main source [].Regarding to previous Genlisea and Utricularia's me […]
