Biochemical Text Mining For Advancing Chemical And Pharmaceutical Knowledge

Grant number: LP160101469 | Funding period: 2018 - 2021



The project aims to develop novel natural language processing methods to find, extract and structure complex chemical reaction information in scientific literature. The project addresses a recognised bottleneck to efficiency in the drug discovery process, by enabling biochemical research results to be turned into actionable information. This has the potential to inform and accelerate development of effective drug treatments through the linking of relevant biochemical information. By delivering new methods that improve the compilation of knowledge about chemicals and drugs from textual information resources, the project hopes to enable faster drug discovery.
