  • Text mining tools for semantically enriching the scientific literature Sophia Ananiadou Director National Centre for Text Mining School of Computer Science University of Manchester
  • Need for enriching the literature Need for semantic search i.e. beyond keywords Need for technologies enabling focused semantic search via the creation of semantic metadata from literature The current scientific literature, were it to be presented in semantically accessible form, contains huge amounts of undiscovered science Peter Murray-Rust, Data-driven science: A Scientists view. NSF/JISC Repositories Workshop, 2007
  • Impact of text mining Extraction of named entities (genes, proteins, metabolites, etc) Discovery of concepts allows semantic annotation of documents Improves information access by going beyond index terms, enabling semantic querying Improves clustering, classification of documents Visualisation based on semantic metadata derived from text mining results
  • Beyond named entities: facts Extraction of relationships, events (facts) for knowledge discovery Information extraction, more sophisticated annotation of texts (fact annotation) Enables even more advanced semantic querying
  • Enriched annotation Text Mining provides enriched annotation layers the user will be able to carry out an easily expressed semantic query which will deliver facts matching that semantic query rather than just sets of documents he has to read Information Extraction and not just Information Retrieval Fact extraction and not just sentence extraction

  • Mining associations from MEDLINE FACTA: Finding Associated Concepts with Text Analysis What diseases are related to a particular chemical? What proteins are related to a particular disease? etc. EBIMed http://www.ebi.ac.uk/Rebholz-srv/ebimed/index.jsp PubMatrix http://pubmatrix.grc.nia.nih.gov/ : FACTA http://text0.mib.man.ac.uk/software/facta/ Quick and interactive

  • Innovative Technologies applied to: Term recognition Named entity recognition Semantic Mark-up Fact extraction ! semantic mark-up improves search ! classifying, linking documents ! knowledge discovery, hidden links, associations, hypothesis generation
  • Natural Language Processing technologies Part-of-speech tagging: GENIA Tuned to biomedical text: 97-99% precision Dictionary-based named-entity recognition Deep parsing Predicate argument relations (90%) Protein-protein interaction extraction Event / fact extraction
  • Automatic Term Recognition http://www.nactem.ac.uk/software/termine/
  • Recognising and Disambiguating Acronyms in Biomedical Literature http://www.nactem.ac.uk/software/acromine
  • Named-entity recognition The peri-kappa B site mediates human immunodeficiency DNA virus virus type 2 enhancer activation in monocytes cell_type ! Entity types (defined by Ontologies) quot; Genes/protein names quot; Enzymes, substances, metabolites, etc quot; GO ontology, KEGG, CheBI, etc
  • Leveraging resources Annotated texts (GENIA corpus, GENIA event corpus) Resources for bio-text mining resource-building NLP tools for text-based knowledge harvesting (NaCTeM) BioLexicon Over 1.5M lexical entries for bio-text mining and growing. Containing rich linguistic information for bio-text mining
  • Population Process Existing repositories chemical, disease, enzyme, species names Subclustering gene/protein names of term variants new gene/protein names Medline abstracts Named entity Term mapping recognition by normalization Bio-Lexicon terminological verbs Manual curation on-going Verb subcategorization verb subcategorization frames
  • Semantic search based on facts MEDIE: an interactive advanced IR system retrieving facts Performs a semantic search ! Core technology annotates texts quot; GENIA tagger quot; syntactic structures quot; Enju (deep parser) quot; facts quot; Dictionary-based named entity recognition J. Tsujii
  • Medie system overview Off-line On-line Deep parser Semantically- RegionAlgebra Input Textbase annotated Search engine Entity Textbase Recognizer Search Query results
  • Sentence Retrieval System Using Semantic Representation MEDIE
  • InfoPubMed ! An interactive Information Extraction system and an efficient PubMed search tool, helping users to find information about biomedical entities such as genes, proteins, and the interactions between them. ! System components quot; Deep parsing technology quot; Extraction of protein-protein interactions quot; Multi-window interface on a browser
  • InfoPubMed Interactions and not just co-occurrences. Calculated using ML and deep semantics.
  • Semantic Information Retrieval http://nactem4.mc.man.ac.uk:8080/Kleio/ # KLEIO: a semantically enriched information retrieval system for biology # Offers textual and metadata searches across MEDLINE # Leverages terminology technologies #Named entity recognition: gene, protein, metabolite, organ, disease, symptom
  • KLEIO architecture
  • Fewer documents with more precise query
  • Linking and enriching pathways with text REFINE (BBSRC) quot; MCISB and NaCTeM (Kell, Ananiadou, Tsujii) to integrate text mining techniques with visualisation technologies for better understanding of the evidence for biochemical and signalling pathways to enrich pathway models encoded in the Systems Biology Markup Language (SBML) with evidence derived from text mining
