BioCreative V.5

BioCreative V5BioCreative (Critical Assessment of Information Extraction in Biology) is an international, community-wide effort for evaluating text mining and information extraction systems applied to the biological and biochemical domains ( The Challenge Evaluations and the accompanying BioCreative Workshops bring the text mining and biomedical communities together and drive the development of text mining systems to meet critical research needs, resulting in novel applications that can be integrated into the knowledge discovery process.
