Abstract

This paper motivates the use of Information Extraction (IE) for gathering data on protein interactions, describes the customization of an existing IE system, SRI's Highlight, for this task and presents the results of an experiment on unseen Medline abstracts which show that customization to a new domain can be fast, reliable and cost-effective.
