Extracting Synonymous Gene and Protein Terms From Biological Literature

Yu, Hong; Agichtein, Eugene

Genes and proteins are often associated with multiple names. More names are added as new functional or structural information is discovered. Because authors can use any one of the known names for a gene or protein, information retrieval and extraction would benefit from identifying the gene and protein terms that are synonyms of the same substance.
