This paper describes the supervised ac- quisition of semantic event frames based on a corpus of biomedical abstracts, in which the biological process of E. coli gene regulation has been linguistically annotated by a group of biologists in the EC research project "BOOTStrep". Gene regulation is one of the rapidly advancing areas for which information extraction could boost research. Event frames are an essential linguistic resource for extraction of information from biological literature. This paper presents a specification for linguistic-level annotation of gene regu- lation events, followed by novel methods of automatic event frame extraction from text. The event frame extraction per- formance has been evaluated with 10- fold cross validation. The experimental results ...
