DeCoaD: determining correlations among diseases using protein interaction networks

BMC Res Notes
PMCID: 4467632
PMID: 26047952
DOI: 10.1186/s13104-015-1211-z

[…] imMiner, introduced by van Driel et al. [], uses literature text mining to assign pairwise similarity scores to diseases. DOSim [] works based on the Disease Ontology (DO) [] and semantic similarity. DiseaseConnect [] combines disease-gene associations from different databases to build a disease-gene network and, for each disease pair, calculates a hypergeometric P value indicating the significanc […]


Infertility etiologies are genetically and clinically linked with other diseases in single meta diseases

PMID: 25880215
DOI: 10.1186/s12958-015-0029-9

[…] an isolated and exclusive disease of the reproductive system/hypothalamic–pituitary–gonadal axis.We should emphasize that we have used two different sources of information to find this evidence: (1) DiseaseConnect web server [] to search for common genes and molecular mechanisms shared by infertility etiologies and other diseases; and (2) a literature search focused on clinical comorbid relations […]
