A comparative genomics study of carbohydrate/glucose metabolic genes: from fish to mammals

BMC Genomics
PMCID: 5896114
PMID: 29642853
DOI: 10.1186/s12864-018-4647-4

[…] Human T2D genes were gathered from the OMIM database (, T2D-Db [], Type 2 Diabetes Genetic Association Database (T2DGADB) and [email protected] []. First, we searched the OMIM database using the keywords “type2 diabetes” and downloaded 681 MIM IDs, including genes, phenotypes, and loci. Using […]


Systems pharmacology approach reveals the antiinflammatory effects of Ampelopsis grossedentata on dextran sodium sulfate induced colitis

PMCID: 5889820
PMID: 29632421
DOI: 10.3748/wjg.v24.i13.1398

[…] .PPI network constitution and identification of candidate targets for AMP against UC: To better understand the mechanisms of AMP in the treatment of UC, 123 candidate targets of UC were obtained from Genetic Association database, Therapeutic Target database and Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man database (Supplementary Table 6). As PPI maps represented physical interactions on a molecular level[] […]


Measuring disease similarity and predicting disease related ncRNAs by a novel method

BMC Med Genomics
PMCID: 5751624
PMID: 29297338
DOI: 10.1186/s12920-017-0315-9

[…] -related genes were distributed in different sources, such as Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) [], Online Mendelian Inheritance in Man (OMIM) [], Gene Reference into Functions (GeneRIFs) [], Genetic Association Database (GAD) [], and so on.Three widely used methods for computing the similarity of terms of ontology were presented by Resnik [], Lin [], and Wang et al. [] repectively. All of […]


DisSetSim: an online system for calculating similarity between disease sets

J Biomed Semantics
PMCID: 5763469
PMID: 29297411
DOI: 10.1186/s13326-017-0140-2

[…] e concept of disease, and it aims to provide a clear definition for each disease. The disease-related genes are scattered in the databases, such as Gene Reference into Function (GeneRIF) [], OMIM [], Genetic Association Database (GAD) [] and Comparative Toxicogenomics Database (CTD) []. It is better to use relationships of all of these databases.“pair-wise-all pairs-maximum” (PWAPM) method and “pa […]


Environment Changes Genetic Effects on Respiratory Conditions and Allergic Phenotypes

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5524954
PMID: 28740106
DOI: 10.1038/s41598-017-06791-y

[…] ation and landmark papers about each candidate gene. Subsequently the Web of Knowledge database was employed to retrieve possible candidate gene SNPs from literatures published from 2004 to 2012. The Genetic Association Database ( was aligned to obtain other possible references using the “broad phenotype (disease)” category. NCBI dbSNP databases (http://www.ncb […]


GenePANDA—a novel network based gene prioritizing tool for complex diseases

Sci Rep
PMCID: 5333103
PMID: 28252032
DOI: 10.1038/srep43258

[…] he network topology of different diseases, with it generally being more effective for those diseases with relatively compact network topology. The disease gene annotations used in this study are from Genetic Association Database (GAD), which has stopped to be updated in 2014. The inclusion of more disease gene annotations from other sources, such as DisGeNET, Phenopedia and BeFree, may change some […]
