PMID: 25914674
DOI: 10.3389/fmicb.2015.00235

[…] a host and pathogen protein, features that make use of the negation signaling keywords were also designed. the protein and gene names, as well as the corresponding organisms were tagged by using the nlprot software (). a set of dictionaries for interaction keywords, experimental keywords, negation keywords, phi-keywords, host names, pathogen names, and uncertainty keywords was manually compiled. […]
