Speaker Sérgio Matos
Event BioCreative and Becalm workshop
Location Barcelona
Country Spain

Abstract: The BioCreative V.5 challenge focused on the recognition of chemicals and gene mentions in medicinal chemistry patents. For participation in the chemical entity (CEMP) and gene and protein (GPRO) recognition tasks, we used the concept recognition framework Neji and applied a machine-learning strategy using a optimized feature set. Our best submissions achieved an F-score of 86.6% for the identification of chemicals and 71.3% for the identification of gene names.
