YAML Metadata Error: "language[0]" with value "english" is not valid. It must be an ISO 639-1, 639-2 or 639-3 code (two/three letters), or a special value like "code", "multilingual". If you want to use BCP-47 identifiers, you can specify them in language_bcp47.


Model description

This model is a RoBERTa base model that was further trained using a masked language modeling task on a compendium of English scientific textual examples from the life sciences using the BioLang dataset. It was then fine-tuned for token classification on the SourceData sd-nlp dataset with the NER configuration to perform Named Entity Recognition of bioentities.

Intended uses & limitations

How to use

The intended use of this model is for Named Entity Recognition of biological entities used in SourceData annotations (https://sourcedata.embo.org), including small molecules, gene products (genes and proteins), subcellular components, cell line and cell types, organ and tissues, species as well as experimental methods.

To have a quick check of the model:

from transformers import pipeline, RobertaTokenizerFast, RobertaForTokenClassification
example = """<s> F. Western blot of input and eluates of Upf1 domains purification in a Nmd4-HA strain. The band with the # might corresponds to a dimer of Upf1-CH, bands marked with a star correspond to residual signal with the anti-HA antibodies (Nmd4). Fragments in the eluate have a smaller size because the protein A part of the tag was removed by digestion with the TEV protease. G6PDH served as a loading control in the input samples </s>"""
tokenizer = RobertaTokenizerFast.from_pretrained('roberta-base', max_len=512)
model = RobertaForTokenClassification.from_pretrained('EMBO/sd-ner')
ner = pipeline('ner', model, tokenizer=tokenizer)
res = ner(example)
for r in res:
    print(r['word'], r['entity'])

Limitations and bias

The model must be used with the roberta-base tokenizer.

Training data

The model was trained for token classification using the EMBO/sd-nlp dataset dataset which includes manually annotated examples.

Training procedure

The training was run on an NVIDIA DGX Station with 4XTesla V100 GPUs.
