Agricultural Organisms Entities &
Relationships Cartridge®
Extracts 11 key types of agricultural organisms entities and 1 relationship binding them, including Attack of plants by pests.


The AgriOrganisms Skill Cartridge® (AgriOrganisms) extracts both 6 key types of Living Organisms in the field of Agriculture with subcategories leading to more than 11 distinctions and 1 relationship binding them, as well as some contextual information. Extracted entities include Cultivated Plants, Model Plants, Plant Pests (distinguishing between Pathogens, Invertebrates and Weeds), Organism Generic Terms, GM Entities (distinguishing between GM Plants and GM animals) as well as Guessed Species names. Relationships include Attack of Plants by Pests.


Organisms like Cultivated plant, insects, weeds, viruses are to be found under their taxonomic (i.e. scientific) name (e.g. Zea mays) or their common name (maize). Cultivated Plants, Bacteria, Viroids and Viruses extracted by AgriOrganisms have the NCBI Taxid as an attribute, allowing to link to the web pages with full description of species and links to numerous extra resources. Vocabularies are the result of the integration of different expert sources. The structure was designed according to analyses needs and expert advice. GM entities are expressed as Events, commercial names and according to their original organism and their modification (e.g. insect resistant cotton). Guessed species and a subpart of GM Entities are the result of the application of patterns.

Customization and Extension

AgriOrganisms allows static mapping.

Typical Applications

AgriOrganisms is well suited to process scientific literature and enable

  • the enrichment of scientific literature on agriculture with deep, domain-specific metadata
  • the analysis of such to derive scientific insights pertaining to cultivated plants and their pests, as well as genetically modified organisms resistant to those pests
