LLL05 Genic Interaction Extraction Challenge:


The LLL05 challenge task is to learn rules to extract protein/gene
interactions from biology abstracts from the Medline bibliography
database. All the training data is now available and contains the
following information:

* Annotation indicating agent and target of a gene interaction
* A dictionary of named entities (including variants and synonyms)
* Linguistic information: word segmentation, lemmatization and
syntactic dependencies.

The goal of the challenge is to test the ability of the participating
IE systems to identify the interactions and the gene/proteins that
interact. The participants will test their IE patterns on a test set
with the aim of extracting the correct agent and target. The challenge
task is associated with the 4th "Learning Language in Logic" workshop
( http://www.cs.york.ac.uk/aig/lll/lll05/ ). Results for this task are
to be reported by the submission of a 4-page paper to the LLL05
