[…] in , is the process of identifying and assigning biomedical database identifiers to genes retrieved from biomedical text. in order to improve efficiency, gnormplus integrates other resources such as simconcept for identifying and simplifying composite names and sr4gn for species named entity identification in biomedical text. pubtator is another resource for biocuration that incorporates […]

[…] combination with the species recognition module sr4gn []. in the second step, the gene/protein mention is normalized using gennorm [] in combination with the composite mention simplification tool, simconcept [] and an abbreviation resolution tool ab3p []., tmvar. tmvar uses a conditional random field (crf) model to detect mutation mentions in text []. the crf model identifies the mutation […]

[…] neurological and cardiovascular toxicity). in this regard, only 1% of disease and chemical mentions are composite mentions in the provided data set, and so we do not use any specific resource (e.g. simconcept tool) to deal with such cases., as mentioned above, it is not straightforward to apply standard re approaches in the cid re task due to the specific characteristics of the task. in nlp, […]

[…] digits, tokens, and binary features of common gene/protein (e.g. ‘alpha’) or family (e.g. ‘proteins’) suffixes., we also filtered composite mentions (‘multiple’ type) by applying our previous study simconcept () to recognize these mentions rather than simplify them. the mentions are recognized as mention with coordination ellipsis or range mention are definitely type 2 and should be removed […]

[…] the fewer the concepts that are located on the path pair. therefore, from the concepts that constitute the shortest-related path pair between concepts, the degree of similarity between concepts simconcept(t1, t2) is defined as follows., definition 3 degree of similarity between concepts. the degree of similarity between two concepts t1 and t2, simconcept(t1, t2) is defined by the equation […]
