    All-paths graph kernel for protein-protein interaction extraction with evaluation of cross-corpus learning

    Automated extraction of protein-protein interactions (PPI) is an important and widely studied task in biomedical text mining. We propose a graph kernel based approach for this task. In contrast to earlier appr...
