Natural language processing for automated validation of protein databases

Grant number: DP150101550 | Funding period: 2015 - 2018



The project aims to use natural language processing and information retrieval to reconcile and improve sources of biological information. Biological research has produced vast volumes of information about proteins, captured in structured resources (databases) and unstructured documents. However, the accuracy of much of this information is questionable. The project proposes to develop methods to validate data and reduce the dramatic inconsistencies in protein information resources by leveraging observed correlations and complementarity between them, and specifically through targeted fact extraction from the biomedical literature. These methods will be applied at scale across millions of publi..
