I got an email today from Larry Hunter at University of Colorado School of Medicine, who writes to say that a DMAP-based parser was the “international world-champion” in the The BioCreAtIvE (Critical Assessment of Information Extraction systems in Biology) data text mining challenge. The chart above are the results from the Protein-Protein Interaction Task.
My colleague at Powerset, Jim Firby and I worked on some of the semantic parsing technology used by the Colorado group. Members of the Center for Computational Pharmacology Biomedical Text Mining Group were the direct researchers on this project though. Congratulations, Larry and team!
