In this paper, a resolution system is presented to tackle nominal and pronominal anaphora in biomedical literature by using rich set of syntactic and semantic features. Unlike previous researches, the verification of semantic as- sociation between anaphors and their antecedents is facilitated by exploiting more outer resources, including UMLS, WordNet, GENIA Corpus 3.02p and PubMed. Moreover, the resolution is implemented with a genetic algorithm on its feature selection. Experimental results on different biomedical corpora showed that such approach could achieve promising results on resolving the two common types of anaphora.
