This project involves teams from different areas (biology, machine learning, natural language processing) in order to develop highlevel analysis tools for extracting structured information from biological bibliographical databases, especially Medline. The paper gives an overview of the approach and compares it to the state of the art. 1 Introduction Developments in biology and biomedicine are reported in large bibliographical databases either focused on a specific species (e.g. Flybase, specialized on Drosophilia Menogaster) or not (e.g. Medline). This type of information sources is crucial for biologists but there is a lack of tools to explore them and extract relevant information. While recent named entity recognition tools have gained a certain success on these domains, event-based Info...
