Semantic Search for Biomedical Texts using Predicate-Argument Structure

Mohammed Alliheedi, Robert Mercer


In this position paper we argue that using semantic roles in addition to using biologically-oriented ontologies and databases (or knowledge bases) will further enhance the generation of RDF triples that can be collected from biomedical text. RDF triples have been used to enhance semantic search beyond the simple use of linguistically oriented additions such as synonyms. We wish to focus on drug-virus interactions.
