We describe a machine learning system for the recognition of names in biomedical texts. The sys- tem makes extensive use of local and syntactic fea- tures within the text, as well as external resources including the web and gazetteers. It achieves an F- score of 70% on the Coling 2004 NLPBA/BioNLP shared task of identifying five biomedical named en- tities in the GENIA corpus.
