The Second BioCreAtIvE Challenge provided an ideal opportunity to evaluate biomedical nlp techniques. Prior to the Challenge, an information extraction pipeline was developed to extract entities and relations relevant to the biomedical domain, and to normalise the entities to appropriate ontologies. With minimal eﬀort, the pipeline was adapted to work with the BioCreAtIvE data and achieved results that appear competitive with existing state-of-the-art systems.
