Biological Text Mining

The main aim of this project is the development of a generic text mining tool for the biological domain. The BioMint tool will search the literature and automatically extract information from abstracts and papers in order to provide two essential research support services: (1) Curator's assistant: accelerate, by partially automating, the annotation and update of bio-databases; and (2) Researcher's assitant: generate readable reports in response to queries from biological researchers and practitioners.
