MOTIVATION: Research on roles of gene products in cells is accumulating and changing rapidly, but most of the results are still reported in text form and are not directly accessible by computers. To expedite the progress of functional bioinformatics, it is, therefore, important to efficiently process large amounts of biomedical literature and transform the knowledge extracted into a structured format usable by biologists and medical researchers. Our aim was to develop an intelligent text-mining system that will extract from biomedical documents knowledge about the functions of gene products and thus facilitate computing with function. RESULTS: We have developed an ontology-based text-mining system to efficiently extract from biomedical literature knowledge about the functions of gene products. We also propose methods of sentence alignment and sentence classification to discover the functions of gene products discussed in digital texts. AVAILABILITY:
