Learning-Free Text Categorization [chapter]

Patrick Ruch, Robert Baud, Antoine Geissbühler
2003 Lecture Notes in Computer Science  
For evaluation purposes, the system uses a sample of MedLine and the Medical Subject Headings (MeSH) terminology as collection of concepts.  ...  For top returned concepts, the system reaches performances comparable to machine learning systems, while genericity and scalability issues are clearly in favor of the learningfree approach.  ...  Acknowledgements The study has been partially sponsored by the European Union (IST Grant 2001-33260, see www.wrapin.org) and the Swiss National Foundation (Grant 3200-065228).  ...

Prioritization, clustering and functional annotation of MicroRNAs using latent semantic indexing of MEDLINE abstracts

Sujoy Roy, Brandon C. Curry, Behrouz Madahian, Ramin Homayouni
2016 BMC Bioinformatics  
Results: For approximately 900 human miRNAs indexed in miRBase, text documents were created by concatenating titles and abstracts of MEDLINE citations which refer to the miRNAs.  ...  In this study, we present an automated text mining approach using Latent Semantic Indexing (LSI) for prioritization, clustering and functional annotation of miRNAs.  ...  Funding This work and its publication was supported in part by the Memphis Research Consortium and the University of Memphis Center for Translational Informatics.  ...
