Curating and structuring data for use in databases is time consuming due to the classical publication structure, lack of standard terminology and a precision gap between database entries and scientific English prose. Using the SABIO-RK database as example we describe this curation challenge, as well as tools that aim at helping authors and curators to bridge this gap.
