DisGeNET is a discovery platform containing one of the largest publicly available collections of genes and variants associated to human diseases. DisGeNET integrates data from expert curated repositories, GWAS catalogues, animal models and the scientific literature. DisGeNET data are homogeneously annotated with controlled vocabularies and community-driven ontologies. Additionally, several original metrics are provided to assist the prioritization of genotype-phenotype relationships. Developed by the Integrative Biomedical Informatics group, the current version (v5.0) contains 561,119 gene-disease associations (GDAs), between 17,074 genes and 20,370 diseases, disorders, traits, and clinical or abnormal human phenotypes, and 135,588 variant-disease associations (VDAs), between 83,002 SNPs and 9,169 diseases and phenotypes.

ADAN (Applicability Domain ANalysis) is a a novel method for assessing the reliability of drug property predictions obtained by in silico methods. The assessment provided by ADAN is based on the comparison of the query compound with the training set, using six diverse similarity criteria.  Developed by the PharmacoInformatics group.

ADRs Substantiation

This is a novel computational framework to aid in the collection and exploration of evidences that support the causal inference of adverse drug reactions (ADRs) detected by mining clinical records. This framework was implemented as publicly available tools integrating state-of-the-art bioinformatics methods for the analysis of drugs, targets, biological processes and clinical events. The availability of such tools for in silico experiments will facilitate research on the mechanisms that underlie ADR, contributing to the development of safer drugs. Developed by the Integrative Bioinformatics group.

ProfileSeq is a computational method for the quantitative assessment of biological profiles to provide an exact, nonparametric probability that specific regions of the test profile have higher or lower signal densities than a control set. The method is applicable to high-throughput sequencing data (ChIP-Seq, GRO-Seq, CLIP-Seq, etc.) and to genome-based datasets (motifs, etc.). Developed by the Computational RNA Biology group.

GUILDify v2.0 is a Tool to Identify Molecular Networks Underlying Human Diseases. A web server for phenotypic characterization of genes through biological data integration and network-based prioritization algorithms. Towards the goal of extending our knowledge on the genetic elements underlying various phenotypes (including but not limited to disease phenotypes), we aim to use gene-phenotype associations in combination with the network-based prioritization methods. Developed by the Structural Bioinformatics group.

Developed by the Integrative Biomedical Informatics group, PsyGeNET (Psychiatric disorders and Genes association NETwork) is a knowledge platform for the exploratory analysis of psychiatric diseases and their associated genes. PsyGeNET is composed of a database and a web interface supporting data search, visualization, filtering and sharing.

Developed by the Evolutionary Genomics group, Protein ALignment Optimiser (PALO) is an algorithm for the selection of the best combination of protein isoforms among orthologous genes in the construction of a multiple alignment. You can easily upload your files from ENSEMBL and this tool will tell you which is the most suitable combination for you to align.
