Deep Question Answering for protein annotation

Our new protein annotation service is now online (http://eagl.unige.ch/DeepQA4PA/), see the full report published in Database this week http://database.oxfordjournals.org/content/2015/bav081.full. The new service is built on top of the Gene Ontology Categorizer (GOCat, ranked #1 at BioCreative 4), which supports biocurators when they perform literature-based Gene Ontology annotation of proteins. It exploits a new Question-Answering components, called Deep QA, which significanlty advances (+100% precision and recall), the answering skills of EAGLi, the premier bio-medical question answering system.
