PMID: 26420781
DOI: 10.1093/bib/bbv087

[…] critically needed, and method development in this area would greatly facilitate discovery., many gene prioritization algorithms have been developed to address this problem, such as genewanderer [], geneseeker [], geneprospector [], suspects [], g2d [] and endeavour [], among others [, ]. a comparative review of these methods can be found in tranchevent et al. []. the general premise […]

[…] systems biology knowledge bases []. many tools attempt to ameliorate the deficits of the human systems biology knowledge base by extensive extrapolation of data from other species. examples are geneseeker, toppgene and endeavour [,-]. gentrepid cps uses only human data to reduce the number of predicted false positives i.e. it makes fewer predictions which are more often correct compared […]

[…] information. among these methods there are: the evoc method that performs candidate gene selection based on the coocurrence of the disease name in pubmed abstracts using data mining methods [], geneseeker that is a web-based tool that selects candidate genes of the disease under study based in gene expression and phenotypic data of human and mouse [], the method proposed by piro et al. [] […]

DOI: 10.1093/bioinformatics/btn182

[…] most proposed data mining approaches make use of available curated databases and predict gene-disease associations by using keyword similarity to known disease genes and phenotypes. for example, geneseeker (van driel et al., ) is a web-based system that integrates positional and expression/phenotypic data from nine different human and mouse databases and provides a quick overview […]

[…] between sentences and abstracts to access and navigate pubmed., mimminer (9) is restricted to mining the omim database and ranks related phenotypes for a given phenotype or omim identifier. geneseeker (10) is a related tool that aims at the identification of genes underlying human genetic disorders by combining data on cytogenetic locus, phenotypes and expression patterns, to generate […]
