Biological Information Extraction and Co-occurrence Analysis
Nowadays, it is possible to identify terms corresponding to biological entities within passages in biomedical text corpora: critically, their potential relationships then need to be detected. These relationships are typically detected by co-occurrence analysis, revealing associations between bioentities through their coexistence in single sentences and/or entire abstracts. These associations implicitly define networks, whose nodes represent terms/bioentities/concepts being connected by relationship edges; edge weights might represent confidence for these semantic connections.
