Event extraction approaches based on ex- pressive structured representations of ex- tracted information have been a significant focus of research in recent biomedical nat- ural language processing studies. How- ever, event extraction efforts have so far been limited to publication abstracts, with most studies further considering only the specific transcription factor-related subdo- main of molecular biology of the GENIA corpus. To establish the broader relevance of the event extraction approach and pro- posed methods, it is necessary to expand on these constraints. In this study, we pro- pose an adaptation of the event extraction approach to a subdomain related to infec- tious diseases and present analysis and ini- tial experiments on the feasibility of event extraction from domain full te...
