The range of scores for the gene/protein extraction tools are for five corpora as evaluated in [20]. The scores for our metabolic reaction extraction method summarize those in Table 4, i.e. they are broken down into the same three binary interactions and the range is for the three evaluation corpora and the Reactome dataset.
