Abstract / Description of output

We report on two large corpora of semantically annotated full-text biomedical research papers created in order to develop information extraction (IE) tools for the TXM project. Both corpora have been annotated with a range of entities (CellLine, Complex, Developmental-Stage, Disease, DrugCompound, ExperimentalMethod, Fragment, Fusion, GOMOP, Gene, Modification, mRNAcDNA, Mutant, Protein, Tissue), normalisations of selected entities to the NCBI Taxonomy, RefSeq, EntrezGene, ChEBI and MeSH and enriched relations (protein-protein interactions, tissue expressions and fragment- or mutant-protein relations). While one corpus targets protein-protein interactions (PPIs), the focus of other is on tissue expressions (TEs). This paper describes the selected markables and the annotation process of the ITI TXM corpora, and provides a detailed breakdown of the inter-annotator agreement (IAA).
