Precision medicine aims to provide personalized treatments based on individual patient profiles. One critical step towards precision medicine is leveraging knowledge derived from biomedical publications-a tremendous literature resource presenting the latest scientific discoveries on genes, mutations and diseases. Biomedical natural language processing (BioNLP) plays a vital role in supporting automation of this process. BioCreative VI Track 4 brings community effort to the task of automatically identifying and extracting protein-protein interactions (PPi) affected by mutations (PPIm), important in the precision medicine context for capturing individual genotype variation related to disease.W..View full abstract
