Mouse results. BioCreAtIvE task 1B results for mouse and the impact of curation on exact search and the ProMiner approach. ES: Exact search; PM: ProMiner; cur.: fully curated synonym list; orig. syn. list: original synonym list as provided by organizers. For the exact search, the submitted results were obtained with the fully curated synonym list and the fully curated synonym list with subsequent application of the rule-based post filter. The results of exact matching of the original synonym list, and lists obtained from the two intermediate curation steps are also shown. For ProMiner, the results of the approximate search alone (PM search) and the results of the ProMiner framework (i.e. approximate search plus filtering and disambiguation) with optimal parameter setting are shown. The submitted results (PM results) were obtained with the entire ProMiner framework, the same fully curated synonym list and different sets of parameters [12]. The fully curated synonym lists used for exact search and the ProMiner approach were the same except ambiguous synonyms.
