Gimli is a machine learning-based solution for biomedical Named Entity Recognition (NER), which goal is to automatically extract names of biomedical entities from scientific text documents. Currently, Gimli supports the recognition of gene/protein, DNA, RNA, cell line and cell type names.
In summary, Gimli receives raw text as input, and provides text with specific annotations as output.
- Machine Learning: Conditional Random Fields (CRFs);
- Features: orthographic, morphological, linguistic parsing and conjunctions;
- Combination: combination of models with different orders and parsing directions;
- Post-processing: parentheses correction and abbreviation resolution.
