A framework to rerun text mining tools on the latest publications

Project description


PubRunner is a framework to keep text mining tools running on the latest publications.


PubRunner uses Python3 and can be installed via pip from PyPI.

pip install pubrunner


To run Pubrunner, you just need to provide it with a path to a biomedical text mining tool (e.g. a Github repo or a local directory). The flag --test tells Pubrunner to execute the test set. Omitting that gets Pubrunner to run the tool on the full corpus (which for Ab3P is PubMed).::

pubrunner --test

Is PubRunner for me?

Are you a biomedical text mining tool developer? Then likely yes. PubRunner makes it easy to run a text mining tool across PubMed and keep it working!


Check out the examples directory to see a small number of projects that use PubRunner on Pubmed.


Documentation including a tutorial can be found at the readthedocs page.


Contributions are very welcome.


Distributed under the terms of the MIT license, "pubrunner" is free and open source software
