Although there have been many research pro- jects to extract protein pathways, most such infor- mation still exists only in the scientific literature, usually written in natural languages and defying data mining efforts. We present a novel and robust approach for extracting protein-protein interactions from the literature. Our method uses a dynamic programming algorithm to compute distinguishing patterns by aligning relevant sentences and key verbs that describe protein interactions. A match- ing algorithm is designed to extract the interactions between proteins.
