The TREC 2005 Genomics Track featured two tasks, an ad hoc retrieval task and four subtasks in text categorization. The ad hoc retrieval task utilized a 10-year, 4.5-million document subset of the MEDLINE bibliographic database, with 50 topics conforming to five generic topic types. The categorization task used a full-text document collection with training and test sets consisting of about 6,000 biomedical journal articles each. Participants aimed to triage the documents into categories representing data resources in the Mouse Genome Informatics database, with performance assessed via a utility measure.
