Combining Biological Databases and Text Mining to Support New Bioinformatics Applications
Abstract. A large amount of biological knowledge today is only available from full-text research papers. Since neither manual database curators nor users can keep up with the rapidly expanding volume of scientific literature, natural language processing approaches are becoming increasingly important for bioinformatic projects. In this paper, we go beyond simply extracting information from fulltext articles by describing an architecture that supports targeted access to information from biological databases using the results derived from text mining of research papers, thereby integrating information from both sources within a biological application. The described architecture is currently being used to extract information about protein mutations from full-text research papers. Text mining results drive the retrieval of sequence information from protein databases and the employment of algorithmic sequence analysis tools, which facilitate further data access from protein structure databa...
