Literature mining is the process of extracting and combining facts from scientific publications. In recent years, many studies have resulted in computer programs to extract various molecular biology findings using Medline abstracts or full text articles. This article describes the range of techniques that have been applied in literature mining. In doing so, it divides automated reading into four general subtasks: text categorization, named entity tagging, fact extraction and collection-wide analysis. Special attention is given to the domain particularities of molecular biology.
