Considerable research is being directed at extracting molecular biology information from text. Particularly challenging in this regard is to identify relations between entities, such as protein-protein interactions or molecular pathways. In this paper we present a natural language processing method for extracting causal relations between genetic phenomena and diseases. After presenting the results of preliminary evaluation, we suggest the use of a graphical display application for viewing the semantic predications produced by the system.
