An Approach to Protein Name Extraction Using Heuristics and a Dictionary.
Seki, Kazuhiro; Mostafa, Javed
Proceedings of the ASIST Annual Meeting, v40 p71-77 2003
Proposes a method for protein name extraction from biological texts. The method exploits hand-crafted rules based on heuristics and a set of protein names (dictionary). The approach avoids use of natural language processing tools so as to improve processing speed. Evaluation experiments were conducted in terms of: accuracy, generalizability, and processing speed.
