Training data

The training data can be donwloaded here. (last updated 08/01/2013)

Training data with pair tags can be donwloaded here (last updated 30/01/2013)


We have produced a new format of the corpus. The difference between the original corpus and the new corpus is very small: <ddi> tag is  replaced by <pair> tag.

While <ddi> is used only for interacting pairs, the <pair> tag is used for each pair of entities (drugs, brand drugs, groups of drugs and drugs not approved for human use). 

We hope that this change  would be a great help for the participants to generate the results of their systems. Training data with pair tags can be donwloaded here

For example the sentence "DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0" (document Aspirin_ddi.xml) originally contained three <ddi> tags:

        <ddi id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.d0" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e2" type="effect"/>
        <ddi id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.d1" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e3" type="effect"/>
        <ddi id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.d2" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e4" type="effect"/>

and the new format contains this information for each pair:

        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p0" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e0" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" ddi="false"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p1" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e0" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e2" ddi="false"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p2" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e0" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e3" ddi="false"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p3" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e0" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e4" ddi="false"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p4" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e2" ddi="true" type="effect"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p5" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e3" ddi="true" type="effect"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p6" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e1" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e4" ddi="true" type="effect"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p7" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e2" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e3" ddi="false"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p8" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e2" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e4" ddi="false"/>
        <pair id="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.p9" e1="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e3" e2="DDI-DrugBank.d412.s0.e4" ddi="false"/>

We hope that this change  would be a great help for the participants to generate the results of their systems. Training data with pair tags can be donwloaded here (last updated 30/01/2013)
