DisGeNET: a discovery platform for translational bioinformatics (PRBB Computational Genomic Seminars)

In this talk I will present the DisGeNET Discovery Platform for the dynamical exploration and analysis of human diseases and their genes. The platform consists of a comprehensive knowledge base of over 400,000 gene-disease associations arising from both expert-curated databases and information extracted from the scientific literature using text mining, with special attention paid to the explicit provenance of the association. The DisGeNET platform provides a set of analysis tools designed to facilitate and foster the study of the molecular underpinning of human diseases. The talk will also illustrate the semantic knowledge representation of DisGeNET, and how to explore and analyze the data using different tools with special emphasis on harnessing the data using Semantic Web technologies.
