Semantic Relations Asserting the Etiology of Genetic Diseases
Considerable research is being directed at extracting molecular biology information from text. Particularly challenging in this regard is to identify relations between entities, such as protein-protein interactions or molecular pathways. In this paper we present a natural language processing method for extracting causal relations between genetic phenomena and diseases. After presenting the results of a preliminary evaluation, we suggest the use of a graphical display application for viewing the semantic predications produced by the system.
