Linguistic Processing of Biomedical Texts
Caroline Hagege, Agnes Sandor, Anne Schiller
In this paper, we describe ongoing work (in the framework of the project BioMiRe) in automatic detection of
gene and protein names in biomedical texts.The approach adopted is one based on robust linguistic analysis
of these texts. The first part will show the specific problemsencountered in the corpora, from the lexical and
syntactic points of view. Then we will describe how the tools we use for linguistic processing perform our task.
The problem of evaluation will then be addressed and our first results will be given. Finally, we will sketch how
we intend to continue the work.
