# extracting gene names from pubmed abstracts

I have been extracted number of abstracts from pubmed. now I am having a bunch of abstracts of pubmed articles now from this abstracts I need to extract gene names which are included in abstracts.

• What you need is a list of genes a priori. In my opinion the problem is there are often no "markers" to alert a text finding algorithm that XXX is gene or a protein, i.e. often no labelled as gene or protein. I could be wrong however. – Michael Mar 14 '19 at 13:45
