    Event extraction approaches based on expressive structured representations of extracted information have been a significant focus of research in recent biomedical natural language processing studies. However, event extraction efforts have so far been limited to publication abstracts, with most studies further considering only the specific transcription factor-related subdomain of molecular biology of the GENIA corpus. To establish the broader relevance of the event extraction approach and proposed methods, it is necessary to expandon these constraints. In this study, we propose an adaptation of the event extraction approach to a subdomain related to infectious diseases and present analysis and initial experiments on the feasibility of event extraction from domain full text publications.
