The Department of Computer Science and A.I. at the University of Granada together with the Center for Biomedical Informatics (CBI) at Harvard Medical School (HMS) are developing advance natural language processing (NLP) techniques to extract facts from biomedical literature. Particularly, our research concerns the automatic identification of gene-gene (protein-protein) interactions and gene-disease interactions.
