Table 2 Mutation retrieval task: Evaluation of precision (P), recall (R), and F-measure (F) on a benchmark set provided with the MutationFinder algorithm. Our MutationTagger performs in general comparably to MutationFinder. Although MutationFinder shows a slightly better overall performance, in the high recall mode MutationTagger extracts more mutations, which is desirable for the subsequent grounding and gene normalization improvement task.
