A minimalist approach to share text documents and data annotations. Allows a large number of different annotations to be represented.

Project files contain:

- simple code to hold/read/write data and perform sample processing.
- BioC-formatted corpora
- BioC tools that work with BioC corpora

BioC goals

- simplicity
- interoperability
- broad use
- reuse

There should be little investment required to learn to use a format or a software module to process that format. We are interested in reuse, and we focus on common NLP tasks that are broadly useful for textmining.
