Using Natural Language Processing

Jo received Wellcome Trust Seed funding in August 2016 to investigate the application of NLP and corpus linguistics tools and techniques on scientific publications. The team includes Paul Rayson, Mahmoud El-Haj and Scott Piao, Sheryl Prentice and Nathan Rutherford. Comparisons of term frequency between psychiatric genetic and immune genetics literature have revealed interesting patterns. The work was presented at the International Genetic Epidemiology Society meeting in September 2017 and the Language Resource Evaluation Conference in Japan in December 2018.
