BioCreative IV Challenge

BioCreative IV Challenge and Workshop

October 7-9, 2013 NCBI, Bethesda, Maryland, USA

BioCreative: Critical Assessment of Information Extraction in Biology is a community-wide effort for evaluating text mining and information extraction systems applied to the biological domain. Built on the success of the previous BioCreative Challenge Evaluations and Workshops ( BioCreative I, II, II.5, III, and 2012 workshop) [1-5] the BioCreative Organizing Committee will host the BioCreative IV Challenge (http://www.biocreative.org/events/biocreative-iv/workshop/) at NCBI, National Institutes of Health, Bethesda, Maryland, on October 7-9, 2013. One key goal of BioCreative is the active involvement of the text mining user community in the design of the tracks, preparation of corpus and the testing of interactive systems. For BioCreative IV, the selection of the tracks has been driven in part by suggestions from the biocuration community during the BioCreative workshop 2012, and by our goal of addressing interoperability -- a major barrier to adoption to text mining tools.

BioCreative IV will consist of five tracks:

Track 1: Interoperability (BioC) – Development of an interoperable BioNLP module that can be seamlessly coupled to BioC compliant modules;
Track 2: Chemical and Drug Named Entity Recognition (CHEMDNER) – Detection of mentions of chemical compounds and drugs, in particular those chemical entity mentions that can subsequently be linked to a chemical structure;
Track 3: Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) Curation – Provision of Web Services to identify gene, chemical, disease, and action term mentions supporting CTD curation in PubMed abstracts;
Track 4: Gene Ontology (GO) curation – Development of automatic methods to aid GO curators in identifying articles with curatable GO information (triage) and extracting gene function terms and the associated evidence sentences in full-length articles;
Track 5: Interactive Curation (IAT) – Demonstration and evaluation of web-based systems addressing user-defined tasks, evaluated by curators on performance and usability;
